World Cup 2014: Kwadwo Asamoah reveals Ghana players' full support for coach Appiah
Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah insists all the Black Stars players are fully behind coach Kwesi Appiah to lead them to the 2014 World Cup despite talk for a foreign assistant for the Ghanaian manager.
Since leading the team to the World Cup, Appiah has had to deal with rumours that the Ghana FA want to bring in a foreigner to assist him in Brazil.
German coach Klaus Topmmoeller was linked with a technical director job with the Black Stars – a report which was rubbished by the Ghana FA.
Two weeks ago Ghana’s leading football news website, GHANAsoccernet.com reported that Appiah himself had asked ex-coach Milovan Rajevac to join his technical bench as a member of his backroom staff.
But Asamoah says the players are fully behind Appiah believing that he can deliver the World Cup title for Ghana.
“He’s been the one that we’ve been with during the qualification so we, the players still believe in him,” Asamoah told BBC World Service.
“If we don’t believe in him it’s going to be difficult for us and for him.”
Asamoah added: “We have him right now so we have to do out maximum best to help him and support him.”
“When we the players help the coach that is also when the coach will get confidence to do his job.”
Ghana face a tough task at the World Cup as they have been drawn in Group G where they face Germany, Portugal and the United States.
