Deputy Minister for Youth and Sports, Honorable Perry Okudzeto says Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah has the full backing of his outfit together with the Black Stars Management Committee and the Ghana Football Association Normalization Committee.
The Black Stars have qualified for their 8th successive Africa Cup of Nations tournament after topping Group F at the end of the qualifiers following their 1-0 win over Kenya.
While many are hoping the team can win the trophy this year, talk of Kwesi Appiah losing his job if fails to win the trophy seems to be gaining grounds in the media space.
This many believe is unhealthy if indeed the Black Stars want to break their 37-year jinx at his year’s AFCON.
Speaking to the media ahead of the tournament, Hon. Perry Okudzeto has confirmed coach Kwesi Appiah has the full support of the Ministry.
“Yes, coach Kwesi Appiah has the full backing of the management committee, has the full backing of the Ministry and the Ghana Football Association Normalization Committee. If he didn’t have the full support and backing of these bodies am not sure he will be where he is. So he does have the backing of all these bodies”, the Deputy Sports Minister indicated.
Meanwhile, Ghana has been seeded in Pot 2 ahead of the official draw for the prestigious tournament which will come off on April 12 in Egypt.
