Stephen Appiah has stated that he is ready and willing to play a managerial role for Kwesi Appiah’s Black Stars.
The former Juventus player has been linked with the team manager role in the Ghana national side, with many reports in the West African country saying he is set to be a part of new coach Kwesi Appiah’s technical team.
There has been no confirmation from either Kwesi Appiah or the Ghana FA that this arrangement will go ahead, but Stephen Appiah has explained that he is ready and willing to serve the Black Stars if he is invited to fulfill the role.
“I have not received any offer from anyone or any letter to that effect. But I will be ready to work for the Black Stars,” he told the media, as quoted by GHANASoccernet.
“I am a businessman who manages players and train a lot of them as well. I have my private engagements, but if it comes to working with the Black Stars, I’m ready.”
Appiah played a key role in the Ghana team which secured the country’s first qualification to the World Cup in 2006 and was also a part of the Black Stars’ backroom staff at the last Africa Cup of Nations.
