‘Being Black Stars coach comes with enormous pressure’ – Kwasi Appiah


Coach Kwasi Appiah says he will not advise anyone to take up the Black Stars job after his previous two experiences with the Ghana senior national team of Ghana.

According to the Ghana former coach the Black Stars job comes with a lot of pressure hence his reason to not offer anyone to take up that mantle.

He also added that one must be mentally prepared and tough to be able to cope with the pressure of being a Ghana coach.

“When I used to be up there, as I am sitting with you now chatting, my mind will be somewhere else. You don’t have the time to concentrate on the things around you”

“You are always planning tactics and how to beat an opponent. It’s not something I will advise someone to get there,” Kwasi Appiah told Untold Stories TV Gh.

“People sometimes think the National team is easy and they can just walk in there, the pressure in it is not advisable”

“There are so many pressures you deal with at the National team level, some with the GFA, clubs, agents, the players themselves coming with their egos and so if you don’t take a break you want to stay under this pressure, you will die”

Kwasi Appiah was an assistant Coach to Milovan Rijevac during the 2010 World Cup and led the team to the 2014 edition before vacating the post.

The Black Stars have qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and reports are that Otto Addo could be handed the job on a permanent basis.
