The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has named James Kwesi Appiah as the new coach of Senior National Team, the Black Stars.
The decision was taken by the Executive Committee of the GFA on Tuesday after approving the report of the six-man coaching search committee.
Appiah will be handed a two-year contract and will start his duties on 1st May, 2017.
He will also take full charge of the Local Black Stars.
He will be tasked to end Ghana’s trophy drought at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations but must overcome Ethiopia, Sierra Leone and Kenya in the qualifiers which starts this June.
Appiah must weave his magic and revive Ghana’s faint hopes in the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals after lying third with one point from two games; five behind leaders Egypt.
