Ghana fires all national team coaches (football)


Ghana’s football association (GFA) on Thursday fired all the national coaches, including for the men and women’s teams.

The announcement draws the curtain on Kwesi Appiah’s stint as the men’s national team coach.

“The decision affects both male and female national teams,” the GFA said.

“The GFA extends its appreciation to all coaches and members of the respective national teams for their contributions to our teams and Ghana football.’‘
