Sudan's newly-appointed head coach for the male senior national team, Coach James Kwesi Appiah, expresses his hope for peace to prevail in the country
Sudan’s newly-appointed head coach for the male senior national team, Coach James Kwesi Appiah, expresses his hope for peace to prevail in the country, amidst an ongoing war that has compelled the Sudan Football Association to operate from Saudi Arabia.
The former Black Stars manager acknowledges the significant challenge posed by the ongoing conflict as he embarks on his new role.
Speaking to Asempa FM, Coach Kwesi Appiah emphasizes his desire for order and peace to be restored, allowing normalcy to return.
“The target I have been given is to build a team and ensure the team qualifies for the 2026 World Cup and the next edition of the Africa Cup of Nations,” Coach Kwesi Appiah stated.
He further notes that the primary challenge at present is the absence of an ongoing league due to the ongoing war, which has led to the Sudan Football Association operating from Saudi Arabia.
However, he remains hopeful that peace will be reestablished in the country.
Last week, the Sudan Football Association officially introduced the Ghanaian tactician as the new head coach for the national team.
Kwesi Appiah signed a three-year contract and will collaborate with two other Ghanaian coaches: Ignatius Osei-Fosu as an assistant coach and Fatau Dauda as the goalkeeper’s trainer.
