Kwesi Appiah has been sacked as coach of Ghana just under a day after leading the Black Stars to secure a vital win over Togo in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
The 54-year-old appears to have paid the ultimate price for the team’s stuttering start to their campaign towards qualifying for next year’s AFCON finals to be staged in Morocco.
The Black Stars were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw by Uganda at home in their opening qualifier last Saturday.
And despite the team bouncing back with a vital 3-2 win over Togo on Wednesday, the Ghana FA have finally decided to fire Appiah.
The ex Ghana captain who took over from Goran Stevanovic in 2012 presided over 21 competitive games with the Black Stars where he won twelve and lost six with three ending in a draw.
Serbian trainer Milovan Rajevac who had arrived in the country on Monday to take up the post as the new technical adviser of the team is tipped to replace the departing Appiah.
