Ghana’s Football Association (GFA) has removed all its national team coaches, at all levels of the game.
The GFA did not give a reason for the move but its president Kurt Okraku, who was appointed in October, promised to “build a new association” following allegations of bribery and corruption in a documentary filmed by an investigative journalist.
The announcement was made late on Thursday evening and sees the end of Kwesi Appiah’s second stint in charge of the senior men’s national team.
Under Appiah, Ghana failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup after playing in the three previous editions and were eliminated in the second round of the Africa Cup of Nations last year — their earliest exit since 2006.
“The Ghana Football Association has dissolved the technical teams of all national teams with immediate effect. The decision affects both male and female national teams,” it said in a statement here released late on Thursday.
“The GFA extends its appreciation to all coaches and members of the respective national teams for their contributions to our teams and Ghana football. We wish them all the best in their endeavours.”
