KWESI APPIAH IS NO LONGER THE COACH OF THE BLACK STARS "CAN WE GET POCHETTINO?" – GHANAIANS ASK

• Ghanaians who were still getting accustomed to being in 2020 certainly did not expect this to be the most used line on social media on Thursday evening.

• However, following the dissolution of all the technical teams of the national football sides, and despite the fact that a number of other coaches are now without jobs, Appiah’s exit is the most telling.

• At least, that’s what’s getting the most traction on social media – ‘Kwesi Appiah’ and ‘Black Stars’ are currently two terms in the top five trends on Twitter in Ghana.

• Despite taking charge of the Black Stars two opening games in their AFCON 2021 qualifying campaign in November, Appiah’s continued stay as head coach of the men’s senior national team had become the subject of much debate.

COACH KWESI APPIAH

Kwesi Appiah is no longer the coach of the Black Stars.


Ghanaians who were still getting accustomed to being in 2020 certainly did not expect this to be the most used line on social media on Thursday evening.


However, following the dissolution of all the technical teams of the national football sides, and despite the fact that a number of other coaches are now without jobs, Appiah’s exit is the most telling.


DESPITE TAKING CHARGE OF THE BLACK STARS TWO OPENING GAMES IN THEIR AFCON 2021 QUALIFYING CAMPAIGN IN NOVEMBER, APPIAH’S CONTINUED STAY AS HEAD COACH OF THE MEN’S SENIOR NATIONAL TEAM HAD BECOME THE SUBJECT OF MUCH DEBATE.

At least, that’s what’s getting the most traction on social media – ‘Kwesi Appiah’ and ‘Black Stars’ are currently two terms in the top five trends on Twitter in Ghana.


Despite taking charge of the Black Stars two opening games in their AFCON 2021 qualifying campaign in November, Appiah’s continued stay as head coach of the men’s senior national team had become the subject of much debate.


His contract expired in December 2019, but speculation was rife that he had been offered a new contract by the GFA.


This earned the ire of some sections of the public who felt that given Ghana’s dismal showing at the AFCON 2019 tournament in Egypt, perhaps a change in management was needed.


And from the reaction to his departure on social media, it’s clear this school of thought was one shared by not just a vocal minority.


While a few people were just glad to be rid of Appiah, some are already looking to the future.


Musical Chairs

One Twitter user is hoping for a bit of a switcheroo in the Black Stars, culminating in fan favourite Michael Essien taking up the top job.



Prayers Answered

Only apt to give thanks once your prayers have been responded to…


New king, new law

New GFA Boss Kurt Okraku is getting lots of love online for this rather radical call



Regret

Having earlier been hopeful of an Appiah masterclass, eating humble pie is something this tweeter doesn’t mind



Bring back the love….with Pochettino?

Former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino might be sought after by Europes biggest clubs but why settle for the easy choice when he could take up a real challenge?


The mother of all coaches

With this resumé, it’s surprising he’s still begging for a job…
