Don’t sack Black Stars coach Appiah – Owusu

Kwesi Appiah

A former Ghana striker Kwasi Owusu says Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has done nothing wrong to be sacked.

Owusu who featured for the Black Stars in the late 60s and early 70s pointed out that the South African referee should be blamed rather as he caused Ghana’s round of 16 exit at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

“We should put the Black Stars elimination at the door step of the referee for disallowing our legitimate goal which in a way discouraged our players. They did well,” Owusu told New Mercury FM.

He added: “I don’t understand why Ghanaians are saying we should sack Kwesi Appiah. He took players we have as a country to the championship.”

Owusu who is believed to have scored over 70 goals for the Black Stars but of which only 30 were documented also talked about the alleged sex issues which happened in the team’s camp.

“Sex and football don’t match. If they engaged in sexual affairs then it did contribute to our elimination from the Afcon.

“We should start with our preparations for the next AFCON Championship now by taking a critical look at our Colts football and the various youth teams,” he added.
