Kwesi Appiah expresses gratitude to Ghanaians

"It would be too much to ask Appiah to qualify for the World Cup but football is football and anything can happen".

Boateng, who plays for Spanish side Las Palmas and Muntari, who is based in Italy with Pescara, were suspended from the national team indefinitely in 2014.

"I do not hold grudges", Appiah said.

The new man is himself a former captain who was once at the centre of a tussle for the armband with Ayew's father, Abedi Pele, and says that unless Gyan decides to call time on his national team career or doesn't merit a spot in the squad, he will continue in the role.

Ghana celebrate Andre Ayew's victor.

Returning Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has been set a target of winning the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

At the unveiling ceremony, the Vice President of the GFA George Afriyie confirmed that, former Ghanaian global footballer Ibrahim Tanko would be the first assistant coach, whilst Maxwell Konadu, who has been the assistant of the team since 2012 has been demoted to second assistant coach.

Other appointments include Stephen Appiah who has been appointed as the Team's Technical Coordinator.

"I will do everything within me to make sure that during my term, Ghana not only has a team for today, but also for up to the next ten years".

He was Ghana's coach at the World Cup in Brazil but then lost his job thereafter.

In naming the former hitman as his primary assistant, Appiah has effectively brought him one step closer to that dream.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has demoted Maxwell Konadu from his position as the first assistant coach of the Black Stars.
