‘Legends and former players are not getting the chance around football administration’ – Stephen Appiah ‘Mad’ at Ghana FA


Ghanaians favourite ever Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah is unhappy with the Ghana Football Association’s treatment of legends of the game and former Ghana Stars.

The former Juventus player wants to see former Stars of Ghana and legends being given the opportunity to take over the administration of Ghana Football.

According to him, Football management is not about big grammar but rather insight and technical knowledge of the game.

“Legends and former players are not getting the chance around football administration. I have learnt something, that football is run by footballers. It is not the grammar or English that you speak,” he said.

“It is about insights, that is why when I went to Italy, without speaking Italian I could understand the coach who was speaking Italian.


“I hope that one day, not me Stephen Appiah necessarily, but I hope one day; one of us will get to lead and we will all support.”


Appiah called time on his football career in 2012, and was honoured with a testimonial game at the Accra Sports Stadium in 2015.

Having risen through the ranks, from U-17 and U-20, Appiah went on to represent the Black Stars 67 times, scoring 14 goals.
