Kwesi Appiah has been given the green light to take up the reins of the Sudan national team after receiving an endorsement from Asante Kotoko’s sole stakeholder, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
The former Ghana coach is currently serving as the Porcupine Warriors’ Technical Director, but was approached by the Sudan Football Association (SFA) to take charge of the Secretarybirds.
Appiah held a meeting with the Asantehene in London and will now travel to Sudan after reaching an agreement on a three-year deal with the SFA.
“The Committee would be headed by Captain Mohamed Abdullah Mazda and the membership of Burhan Teh, Hamdan Hamad, Fawzi Al-Taisha, Ghanaian coach Kwesi Appiah as Technical Director, Moroccan Youssef Fartout as General Coach, a Ghanaian assistant coach and Salah Nour El-Din as coach,” a statement from the SFA said.
Appiah has previously worked in Sudan at Al Khartoum from 2014 to 2017 and guided the club to the CAF Confederation Cup in his final year at the helm.
