Former Black Stas head coach, James Kwasi Appiah has shared his opinion on what can make Chris Houghton succeed in the 2023 AFCON to be played in Ivory Coast between 13th January – 12th February.
Kwasi Appiah, 66, has been in charge of the Black Stars as head coach on two occasions (2012-2014, 2017-2020) and hence knows a thing or two about how to succeed with the senior national team.
Speaking on Chris Houghton’s 27-man squad, Mayele said, <span;>“I think we’ve got a good squad. I’m in support of the players selected by the coach for the tournament, but the only thing I am hoping for is for the coach to be bold enough to make decisions as to who should play or who should be on the bench.
“Once he can do that, looking at the list, I think they can compete at any level,” Appiah added.
The experienced gaffer is currently in charge of the Sudan national team and will closely monitor his beloved Black Stars from afar in the AFCON.
Kwesi Appiah led Ghana and reached the semi-finals of the AFCON in 2013 and lost 3-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in 120 minutes of action.
Ghana in Group B will play against Cape Verde, Egypt and Mozambique.
