Former Ghana International John Painstil has named erstwhile Head Coach of the Black Stars Kwasi Appiah as one of the managers that can lead Ghana in the playoff of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Nigeria.
Following the sacking of Milovan Rajevac due to Ghana’s poor display at the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon, the Black Stars are without a coach and Ghana FA is in hunt for a new coach for the team as the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff against Nigeria in March gears.
Speaking on GTV Sports Plus, John Painstil who was part of the team that took Ghana to its first World Cup in 2006 named Kwasi Appiah as one of the coaches the FA can appoint to handle the Ghana Nigeria playoff.
“There’s no time at all on our side, I think they should appoint a coach who’s seen it all, Coach Kwasi Appiah is one of the coaches who can handle the Ghana and Nigeria game,” John Painstil said on GTV Sports plus.
Per reports, Chris Hughton is edging closer to be appointed new Head Coach of the Black Stars. The deal is expected to be made official in the coming days.
The former Newcastle United boss will lead Ghana in the playoff of the FIFA World Cup against Nigeria next month.
