Why Appiah Opted For A Pro Analyst For The Black Stars … Ahead Of The Next Month’s World Cup In Brazil

Kwesi appiahCOACH of the Black Stars, Kwesi Appiah has reiterated that the importance of a professional analyst in modern football could not be underestimated.

He added that his decision to get a professional analyst for the Stars was informed by his trip to Anfield in Liverpool in March.

Interacting with sponsors of the trip, Standard Chartered Bank and Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) in Accra last Tuesday, he said, “I insisted to get a professional analyst who is equipped with modern technology to assist me in my duty at the World Cup.”

He stressed that his presence would go a long way to make analysis of a game easier and improve upon performance of the team during the competition.

According to the coach,” one modern analyst is 10 times better than dozens of ordinary scouts or officials handling the role of an analyst.”

“With an analyst, one is able to know the flaws and strength of a team at half time with a very short time and address them to improve upon the game,” he added.

He stated further that, the analyst would also help in ensuring the right roles are given to players in a particular game.

After the World Cup, he said, the local personnel to accompany the newly-assigned analyst would gain enough insight on the current technology and further train others in Ghana to improve upon the game.

Aside that, he said the medical approach to handling injuries and the medical facilities would be improved by virtue of the clinic at Liverpool.

“Some improvements in the medical department of the team have been tabled down and efforts would be made for the best personnel and equipment as it would go a long way to raise the standard of the game, “he stated.

He stressed that, the exercise at Liverpool has been very helpful and would have a huge impact on the performance of the Black Stars.

Nii Okai Nunoo of Standard Chartered Bank stated that the decision to partner the sponsorship of the coach to Liverpool was due to the realization of the passion Ghanaians have for football and the need to achieve results.

“Our coach deserves the best training in order to improve upon the game and achieve results, which most Ghanaians are hungry about,” he stated.

David Amorfa of GNPC added that they were committed to supporting the course of the Black Stars as they have recently renewed their contract with the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

He stated that the values of the company which include, hardwork, trustworthiness and courage fall in line with the objectives of the Black Stars adding that “we are optimistic that Ghana would be successful in Brazil.” By Michael D. Abayateye
