Okay FM’s morning show host, Kwame Nkrumah Tikese has called on Ghana’s coach Kwesi Appiah to resign honourably from his current occupation as head coach of the senior national team.
The call by the veteran broadcaster to Kwesi Appiah is premised on last Tuesday’s 2-2 stalemate in the Black Star’s Africa Cup of Nations opening game against Benin.
The Squirrels stunned the four-time champions in just the second minute through Mickael Pote, but captain Andre Ayew and younger brother Jordan hit back to send Ghana 2-1 up before half-time.
After Ghana centre-back John Boye was sent off for a second bookable offence, Pote registered his second goal of the night to seal a 2-2 draw in the Group F fixture at the Ismailia Stadium.
This Kwame Nkrumah believes is on the failure of coach Kwesi Appiah in making significant changes to help bring an end to the fortunes of the Black Stars.
”For the players I have no much of issue with them but I think the coach is doing very well enough. His selection, tactics, and everything on the field of play is poor. He is too soft for the position” he said in an interview with The New Publisher.
According to him, Kwesi Appiah’s side continues to experience poor starts to games and that has been a major concern for the Black Stars team adding that, ”The defensive setup usually has a mistake or two in them”.
”I believe Tony Baffour, Odenke, C.K Akonor are several other hard and experienced gentleman who can lead the Black Stars to a better level” he explained responding to a question on who he thinks can best replace Kwesi Appiah.
