The erstwhile coach of the senior male national team of Ghana, James Kwesi Appiah has expressed his personal decision to turn his attention from football to focus on other areas of interest.
According to the ex-Black Stars skipper, he is not ready to continue with his career in the footballing field although he has been receiving several interests from clubs in and outside Ghana.
Kwesi Appiah, whose contract expired in December of last year, said, he wants to venture into something completely different from coaching or managing a football team.
“Now I am not interested in football, my concentration is on other things, although I don’t know what will happen in the future
“But I don’t want to know anything about footbal,” he said in interview with Wontumi FM.
The 60-year-old experienced coach has had two spells with the Black Stars and successfully qualified them for three AFCONS and one world cup but the results were nothing to write home about. The constant bashing he received from some loud-mouthed Ghanaians were enough to get him dazed and disoriented.
Although he has a vast spell of experience in Sudan and other places coupled with his exposure, Kwesi Appiah believes the time is up for him to refocus his attention on what is more important.
Perhaps Ghanaians have used their mouths to kill the zeal he had had for the job and profession.
