Kwesi Appiah has been backed to succeed as Ghana’s new coach, with Zambian legend Kalusha Bwalya wishing him good luck in the role.

Appiah was named as the Black Stars new manager earlier this week, signing a two-year contract after seeing off competition from the likes of Willy Sagnol and Hugo Broos to succeed Avram Grant.

It will be Appiah’s second permanent spell in charge of Ghana, having been at the helm of the team from 2012 to 2014. He successfully guided them to qualification for the World Cup in Brazil, but lost his job soon after their disappointing performance at the tournament.

The 56-year-old’s appointment has been met with mixed reactions, though Zambia’s Bwalya has welcomed Appiah’s return.

"I support GFA and Kwesi for bringing back coach Kwesi Appiah. I thought he did a great job before and I hope he will come and give his best again. Good luck,” the Zambian is quoted by GHANASoccernet.
