Mr Ernest Thompson, member of the management team of the Black Stars believes the targets set for Head Coach of the team, Kwesi Appiah are realistic and achievable.

Appiah has been charged to qualify and win the next continental championship, AFCON 2019, to be held in Cameroon and employ possible measures to qualify the team to the World Cup and build a strong national team A and B.

Speaking at Appiah’s unveiling on Tuesday, Mr Thompson said, “there is no way we would appoint a coach without making qualification and winning the AFCON a target and it is possible for him to realise these goals.”

“It would be too much to ask Appiah to qualify for the World Cup but football is football and anything can happen”. It was fair that we make it a reasonable expectation but it was not a reason for termination of contract if he doesn’t achieve that one”, he added.

Mr. Thomson urged Ghanaians to support the coach to be able to be victorious for the country, saying, “Ghanaians should support Kwesi Appiah because I believe it’s all he needs now. He’s been in this position before and it’s nothing new. He’s admitted that he had made a lot of mistakes in the past and is ready to correct them so let’s support him to make this second coming a success”.

He said he was happy about Stephen Appiah’s appointment as the team coordinator because it’s the right time for him to join the technical team of the Black Stars.

“The Head Coach has been out of the country for over two years now and Appiah has been close to the players and we’ve had problems in terms of management of the players so we need somebody of that calibre and nature, who will bring in something more to coordinate players and the technical team”, he said.
