‘No Black Stars player is richer than me’ – Kwesi Appiah

Former Black Stars coach, James Kwesi Appiah says he is not the kind of manager who will beg for money from footballers in the national team.

Coaches are often accused of receiving illegal payments known as bungs from agents or players before giving them playing time in the national team especially.

The former Asante Kotoko gaffer who left his post as Black Stars coach on December 31, 2019, following the expiration of his contract, however, sees himself as a devout Christian and has distanced himself from such practices before giving player opportunities to represent the nation.

“No Black Star player is richer than me so I will never ask a player to buy me a watch, shirt etc. I command respect,” he said on Angel FM.

The 59-year-old was reappointed as Black Stars coach in 2017, taking over from Israeli and former Chelsea manager Avram Grant.

However, his tenure came to an end on December 31, 2019, after the GFA declined the chance to have it renewed.

This was followed by complete dissolution of the technical teams of all the national teams by the FA.
