President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has affirmed confidence in the Black Stars’ coach, Kwesi Appiah.
Nyantekyi said in Accra on Wednesday that “The Executive Committee has full confidence in Kwesi Appiah and in his ability to do the job. They have instructed that the necessary action about his new contract be completed.
“We also request that the coach review the current Black Stars and retain players only based on competence, commitment and discipline. The coach should be encouraged to add young additions to the team.”
Ghana exited the World Cup with only a point to record the Black Stars’ most abysmal outing since making their debut at the global stage in Germany 2006 where they reached the last 16.
Appiah, first indigenous coach to qualify Ghana to the World Cup’s tenure has come under incensed pressure despite a two-year extension by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) just before the competition began last month.
The coach has a contract that runs until 2016 and insists he picked enough positives at their campaign in Brazil to help build a better team for the future.
Appiah is expected to lead Ghana’s campaign for a place at the next Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco next year. The qualifies begin in September.
