Sudan contact Kwesi Appiah
Former Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has confirmed to Ghanaian media that contact has been made regarding the now vacant job of the Sudan national team.
Appiah, now head coach of Sundanese side Khartoum SC is being pursued following Mohammed Abdallah’s resignation as coach of the Nile Crocodiles following their 0-4 defeat to Gabon in the AFCON 2017 qualifiers.
The Sudan Football Association are understood to have started negotiations for the Ghanaian with an announcement expected by the end of the week.
“I was contacted by the Sudanese FA over the weekend but I referred them to my club,” Appiah confirmed to Ghana based radio Nhyira FM on Tuesday.
“But I have not agreed on anything yet because I’m contracted to Khartoum FC. They must discuss and seal an agreement with my club first.
“I will be happy to coach the Sudan national team but I don’t know if it will be for a permanent or caretaker role. We will see how things go in the coming days,” Appiah added.
Before taking up the post at Khartoum FC, Kwesi Appiah led Ghana to qualification and subsequent participation at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
