Kwesi Appiah sacked as Ghana national team football coach

Kwesi Appiah has been relieved of his duty as the head coach of the Ghana national football team by the country's soccer governing body.

The 59-year-old Ghanaian is not the only person sacked by the Ghana FA, as all the coaches handling their teams at all levels were thrown out.

Ghana Football Association chiefs made the decision on Thursday, January 2, thereby ending the second tenure of Kwesi Appiah and his high-profile technical staff.

The Ghana Football Association has been under new leadership since October, and those in charge think there should be a clear-out process in the new year.
