Kwesi Appiah’s return is a poisoned chalice - Foh Amoaning

Published on: 04 April 2017

Former Ghana Boxing Authority boss Moses has called Kwesi Appiah’s imminent appointment as Black Stars head coach as poisoned chalice.

According to Foh Amoaning, Kwesi Appiah’s appointment comes at a point when the Black Stars are almost out of the World cup qualifying race and the team is in near shambles and needs he to be very careful in negotiating for his contract.

Speaking on Happy FM’s Anopa Bosuo Sports, Moses however held that the clarion call from Ghanaians for the return of Kwesi Appiah is a good tiding for the gaffer.

“Kwesi Appiah’s imminent return as Black Stars head coach looks like a poisoned chalice especially since the Black Stars are almost out of the qualifying race for the 2018 FIFA  World Cup and Avram Grant didn’t leave the team in good shape. However, I know that Ghanaians will offer their unflinching support to the Kwesi Appiah because it a clarion call from them and they have no option than to help him succeed.” Foh Amoaning said.

Moses Foh Amoaning has been a proponent of local coaches for the Black Stars and sees this as the right decision for the national team.
