Former Black Stars coach James Kwesi Appiah has been awarded coach of the year in Sudan.
Appiah, who manages Sudanese Premier League side Al Khartoum, pipped other contenders including Fawzy Al Mardy who is head coach at title winners Al Hilal Omdurman.
The former Ghana international defender demonstrated top level coaching skills during the season guiding Khartoum to fifth position on the league log.
The 56-year-old took charge of Al Khartoum in December 2014 after his appointment with the Black Stars came to an end.
