Coaching the Black Stars comes with too much pressure – James Kwasi Appiah

Former Ghana coach James Kwasi Appiah says that handling the senior men’s national team the  Black Stars comes with too much pressure as Ghanaians always want good results for the team.

Appiah had two stints with the Black Stars as the head coach with his first coming in 2012-2014 while his second stint also occurred between 2017 to December 2019.

Aside that he served as an assistant coach to most of the Serbian coaches who helped Ghana qualify to the World cup in 2010in South Africa.

He says he will not be taking any coach job as it comes with too much pressure and that is not good for his health.

Speaking in an interview with Rainbow Sports, he shot down any speculation linking him with coaching jobs at Samartex and Bibiani Gold Stars.

“I have decided to step aside and rest from coaching now,” he told Rainbow Sports.

“If I want to coach there are about ten clubs who are inquiring about my service. I think I need to rest to gain strength with my age now.

“I am independent, and I haven’t received any offer from any club in Ghana. Samatex and Bibiani Gold Stars haven’t sent me any offer, and I think it’s just a rumour.

According to coach Appiah, who had two stints with the Black Stars, the coaching job in Ghana is not easy.

“Coaching isn’t easy in Ghana, and it contains much pressure. Ghanaians always seek results, and it gives you the coach much pressure,” he added.

“I can decide to come back into coaching anytime but am not willing to come in now. I may be a call to work for the Football Association as a technical director, but I think I need to rest,” he added.
