Kwesi Appiah not interested in taking up any football position


Former Black Stars boss James Kwesi Appiah has revealed that he is currently looking for any role in the sport despite interest from several foreign clubs.

Appiah revealed this in an interview with Kumasi-based Wontumi FM saying that he will be concentrating on other things outside sports “I’m not interested in talking about any football issues for now. I don’t know, maybe tomorrow I will change my mind but for now, I’m not interested”

“Although I don’t know what will happen in the future I don’t want to know anything about football for now,” he added.

The ex-Kotoko player insists he wants to put his focus on business stating “Our footballers, I’m not saying they did not do well but at the end of the day if during their playing days, started other businesses with part of the money they made from playing like by now they wouldn’t be looking up to football earnings alone,”

Appiah was first appointed as head coach of the Ghana national team from April 2012 to September 2014, having led the Black Stars to a fourth-place finish at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa and a group stage exit at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
