THE Ghana FA has confirmed the nomination of James Kwasi Appiah as the new coach of the Senior National Team, the Black Stars.

Appiah, 57, officially starts his second stint on May 1 and will be in charge for the next two years.

A statement from the Ghana FA said: “The decision was taken by the Executive Committee of the GFA on Tuesday after approving the report of the six-man coaching search committee.”

Appiah “will also take full charge of the Local Black Stars” and see the team through the qualifying rounds of the 2018 Chan to be hosted by Kenya.

The search for a new coach began late February after former Chelsea coach Avram Grant indicated his decision not to extend his expiring contract.

The Ghana FA subsequently instituted a six-man committee chaired by its President Kwesi Nyantakyi. Adopting a two-prong approach, over 100 applications were received while Appiah and Hugo Broos were headhunted, supersport.com understands.

Appiah, who was in charge when Ghana qualified for the 2015 World Cup, has received massive support for his return throughout the search process.

He is expected to rejuvenate the Black Stars and lead the team’s revival in the 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifiers as well as lead Ghana to a much elusive fifth Africa Cup of Nations title at the Cameroon edition in 2019.

Kwasi Appiah is an ex-Ghana international who played as a left-back for the Black Stars. He began his coaching career in 1993 and holds a Fifa/Caf License A certificate.
