Stephen Appiah wants Black Stars backroom staff dissolved



Former Black Stars captain, Stephen Appiah believes the backroom staff of the national team should be dissolved after the team finished fourth on the just ended Africa Cup of Nations.

After 35 years of trophy drought, many football fans were expecting the technical team and the management of the team to work together to archive a common aim by winning the ultimate.

The country’s chance of winning the trophy was halted by Cameroon in the semifinals of the competition defeating the Stars by 2:0.

Burkina Faso deepens the pains of the team defeating them by a lone goal to nothing in the third and fourth place fixture finishing the competition at the fourth position.

Head coach of the team, Avram Grant was reportedly to have officially resigned as head coach of the Black Stars team on Tuesday morning.

But Appiah who led Ghana to its first ever World Cup appearance in Germany wants the entire backroom staff fired over poor performance exhibited in Gabon.

“For me I think they should dissolve the entire backroom staff, not only Grant but the entire technical team.”

“We need a total overhaul in the technical team; you can’t sack only the Coach and leave the rest.

“He was working with them so you have to dissolve the entire team.” He added.

Ghana will now be hoping to break the trophy in 2019 in Cameroon.
