Asante Kotoko technical director, James Kwasi Appiah has addressed the reports linking him to a potential role as Sudan’s national team manager.
As was previously reported Sportsworldghana.com on Wednesday, Appiah has not yet finalized a contract to assume the position of Sudan’s national team boss, despite ongoing negotiations.
At the age of 63, Kwesi Appiah has refrained from taking up any prominent coaching positions since his tenure as the head coach of the Ghana national team in 2020. Currently, he is actively involved as a member of the interim management committee at Asante Kotoko.
Regarding the situation, James Kwasi Appiah shared, “There are currently talks with them (Sudan FA) but I am waiting for the approval and release of Otumfour Osei Tuu II,” he told Ghanasportspage.com.
In the meantime, it is understood that the coach who led Ghana to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil is genuinely interested in the Sudan national team role. Once he receives the blessing of Asantehene, he intends to finalize discussions with the Sudan FA and officially formalize his contract.
Appiah holds a prominent reputation as one of Ghana’s most esteemed coaches in Africa, and considering his previous experience with Al Khartoum, the Sudan national team position appears to be mutually attractive to both parties.
