I Received Warnings For Calling Mohammed Kudus To Play For The Black Stars – Kwesi Appiah Discloses



Former Black Stars coach, Kwesi Appiah has disclosed how he was treated after he called Mohammed Kudus to play for the national team.

He claimed some Ghana Football Association (GFA) officials warned him after he invited Kudus.

Mr Appiah said his job was even on the line.


He recalled this happened when Ghana was meeting South Africa in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in 2019.

“Not only [Mohammed] Kudus but some other young players. There were people who felt the young players didn’t deserve the Black Stars call-up,” Kwasi Appiah said in an interview with Dan Kweku Yeboah TV.

He added: “But for me, I had watched them and I believed them. I always told my players don’t prove to me, prove to Ghanaians. If you do well that’s for your own good.


“My job was on the line because I was warned that if I lost the match I will be sacked. I didn’t mind because I knew I was doing what was good for the country.”

However, Ghana won 2-0 against South Africa.
