Former Black Stars coach, James Kwesi Appiah, has been appointed as head coach of newly formed Kenpong Football Academy.

“We are proud and honoured to have you as our Head Coach and may God bless your good works with KFA.”

Appiah will be supported by Francis Oti Akenteng, who is the director of football.
