Kwesi Appiah Responds To False Reports To Sack Assistant Ibrahim Tanko And Stephen Appiah

Kwesi Appiah opens up about sacking Ibrahim Tanko, Stephen Appiah

Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has put cold water on claims that his assistant Ibrahim Tanko and team manager Stephen Appiah have been suggested to be removed.

There were extensive reports earlier this week that Appiah wished to shuffle his backroom employees and introduce some fresh faces.

The 59-year-old expects CK Akonnor to replace Tanko with former Asante Kotoko coach and also appoints Sabahn Quaye as his team manager.

But the ex-captain in Ghana claims he replied by stating that the accounts are incorrect and suspect that it is an agenda to tarnish his picture.

”In the first place, I don’t sack people. I don’t have the right because it is the Normalization Committee that appoints. They issue letters as to whether you are fired or appointed. The role I play is to suggest how maybe things should be done,” Appiah is quoted as saying.

”So some of the suggestions are what we have been discussing. But I don’t know where this one is coming from.

”Is it an agenda that people are setting up? At the end of the day, I recommended them and therefore, if I feel there is a need to part ways, the right thing is to tell them or find another way of agreeing on that.

”So there have been so many things but at the end of the day, a decision has not been taken.”
