Appiah Begs Ghanaians To Be Patient With Chris Hughton

Stephen ‘Tornado’ Appiah

Former Ghana Black Stars skipper Stephen Appiah has begged Ghanaians and the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to be patient with Stars lead coach Chris Hughton.

The 64-year-old Hughton has gone under huge pressure from officials from the GFA recently who have registered their disappointment with the performance of the national team since he took over.

Since his appointment, Ghana has played three games winning one and drawing the other two, all during the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Speaking on Joy Sports, Appiah, who captained Ghana to its first World Cup called for more time for the Irish coach.

“We are in a country where we don’t have patience…We have to know that any coach you bring comes with a different style of play so the players never get used to a particular play,” he said.

“That is why maybe we are not getting what we want to see with Christ”

He added that there are insufficient men in Ghana’s technical team, something that has become part of the cutting edge game.

“Today’s football is not all about what we see on the pitch. The force is about the people on the bench – the technical staff. That is why more teams in Europe have more technical staff than the [playing body],” he continued.

“At the end of the day, all this is money. Do we have the money to do that? No.”

Yet again, Chris Hughton will be in control in September when Ghana face Central African Republic in the decider for the 2023 Africa Cup of Countries.
