George Afriyie confident in ‘dream team’ Black Stars back room
Chairman of the Black Stars management committee, George Afriyie, believes that the new technical setup under Kwesi Appiah has the ability to succeed.
At Kwesi Appiah’s unveiling held last week at the Ghana Football Association’s headquarters, it emerged that Stephen Appiah, Richard Kingson, Ibrahim Tanko and Maxwell Konadu will be given various roles in the team’s backroom. While Tanko and Konadu will be Kwesi Appiah’s assistants, Stephen Appiah will be the team’s technical coordinator and Kingson will be the goalkeeper’s trainer. Afriyie, in speaking to Accra-based Happy FM on Tuesday, said that he had total confidence in the group.
“When you look at the personalities in the back room, they are all former national footballers and they can be best described as a dream team. I have absolute confidence in them. They have been around and they know what Ghanaians want from them. I do not think they can fail or disappoint.
The GFA and the Black Stars management committee team will give them all the support they need.” Afriyie went on to state that the FA had clearly defined the roles of each member of the back room and there would no clashes over how things would be done.
Kwesi Appiah will lead the main Black Stars team into the 2019 AFCON qualifier on June 11 in Kumasi against Ethiopia before playing against Mexico and the United States in two international friendly games in July.
