Published on: 12 July 2019

Outspoken football administrator, Kofi Manu who is popularly known as ‘Blue Boy’ has stressed that anybody who tries to sack Black Stars head Coach James Kwesi Appiah must sack himself first.

His comments come on the back of speculations suggesting that the gaffer will be sacked in the coming days following the disappointing campaign of the Black Stars in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament which is currently ongoing in Egypt.

Speaking in an interview with Kumasi based Ashh FM on the back of the sack rumors, the experienced football administrator has stressed that no member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee (NC) or the Ministry of Youth, Sports, and Culture has the right to take such action.

"Nobody has the right to sack Coach James Akwasi Appiah and if someone tries to do that, the person should sack himself first from the NC or MOYS"

"Nobody has the right to dissolve Black Stars technical team", Kofi Manu shared.

He further stated that the President of the GFA Normalization Committee, Dr. Kofi Amoah must resign if he does not want to disgrace himself. He opines that the leadership of Dr. Amoah can be blamed for the poor showing of the national team this year.

"Dr. Kofi Amoah must resign if he doesn't want to disgrace himself", he said.
