Appiah-Kubi only joined the side at the beginning of the campaign nine months ago alongside the more experienced; Tarek Elrich and Aaron Mooy who had returned to the Australian top flight after stints abroad.
Has made 13 appearances this term under Tony Popovic where he has been one of the most effective substitutes for the side in their run to the playoffs finale.
The remarkable achievement by Western Sydney has got the Australian who can play for Ghana at international level dumbfounded.
“It’s unbelievable . . . I don’t know really how to react,” Appiah-Kubi said.
“I am very thrilled. It is a privilege to be part of the inaugural squad and I can’t wait for training.
”It has been my dream to play in the A-League. I have been working for that for ages and now that it is close I just can’t wait.”
The ex Parramatta City player is being courted to play international football for New Zealand.
Western Sydney are yet to lose a game whenever Appiah-Kubi comes on as a substitute.
