Postado Mai 19, 2017

Ghana Football Association executive committee member Wilfred Kwaku Osei wants Black Stars new coach Kwesi Appiah to hold talks with Juventus midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah to reconsider representing the national team.

Appiah is returning to the Black Stars job after he paid the prize for the country's wrecked 2014 FIFA World Cup campaign in Brazil.

At the unveiling ceremony, the Vice President of the GFA George Afriyie confirmed that, former Ghanaian global footballer Ibrahim Tanko would be the first assistant coach, whilst Maxwell Konadu, who has been the assistant of the team since 2012 has been demoted to second assistant coach.

Appiah was appointed in April to replace Avam Grant whose contract was not renewed after Ghana finished fourth at the African Nations Cup in Gabon in February.

Other appointments include Stephen Appiah who has been appointed as the Team's Technical Coordinator.

"I've learnt a lot; there were so many mistakes I believe I made and I won't repeat them".

Kwasi Appiah also noted his call-ups will be based on merit, indicating plans to build his team around youthful players.

Mr Thompson told the media during the coach's unveiling last Tuesday that, "there is no way we would appoint a coach without making qualification and winning AFCON a target and it is possible for him to realise these goals for us".

He added that the coach has been tasked to do his best to qualify Ghana to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

Then two internatinal friendlies against Mexico and United States of America on the 28 June and 01 July respectively.
