The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has re-appointed Kwesi Appiah as the coach of the Black Stars. Appiah, who will also take charge of the national team for locally-based players, has been offered a two-year contract to start work 1 May. He replaces Avram Grant who stepped down as coach after the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations. It is a second stint in charge for Appiah, who led the Black Stars from 2012 until 2014. Since leaving the Black Stars following a poor World Cup campaign, he has been coaching Sudanese side Al Khartoum. The Black Stars failed to get out of the group at the World Cup in Brazil and were also beset by off-field problems with players being expelled from the team and a row over pay.
