A Black Star dimmed

END OF THE ROAD: Kwesi Appiah

KWESI APPIAH has left his post as manager of the Ghana national team just days after they beat Togo 3-2 in a qualifier for the African Cup of Nations.

Appiah was in charge of the Black Stars disappointing World Cup campaign in Brazil this summer where they failed to win a game in a group that featured Portugal, the United States and eventual winners, Germany.

Reports had been increasing that he would be leaving for the past few weeks, before the Ghana Football Association (GFA) released their statement.

It read: “The Ghana Football Association and Black Stars coach James Kwesi Appiah have agreed to mutually part way. The two parties met on Friday morning (September 12) to reach the agreement on the departure of Mr Appiah.”

The frontrunner to take over is former boss Milovan Rajevic who was in change for two years from 2008. The Serb led them to the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, before they lost to Uruguay on penalties.

The GFA are expected to announce the name of the new manager before they meet Guinea in their next qualifier in October.
