Kwesi Appiah’s firing from his job as Black Stars coach brings to an end a strange relationship with the national team.
His firing was the sum total of a myriad of reasons; some football related, others personality related.
For some he was a little too reticent to be in charge of a national team as boisterous and ego ridden as the current Black Stars. His tactics were also over analysed and criticised with the footballing public not sold on his brand of football.
One of the most difficult things would be where to place Appiah. Successful? Moderate success? Average? Failure.
Maybe a closer look at the numbers for Appiah will help in what category to place him on the pantheon of Black Stars coach.
