Former Black Stars coach, James Kwesi Appiah says he is not the kind of coach who will go begging footballers in the national team for money.
Kwesi Appiah who happens to be the former Asante Kotoko gaffer left his post as Black Stars coach on December 31, 2019, following the expiration of his contract. He however, sees himself as a devout Christian and has distanced himself from such practices before giving player opportunities to represent the nation.
According to him on an interview with Angel FM
No Black Star player is richer than me so I will never ask a player to buy me a watch, shirt etc. I command respect,”
The 59-year-old was reappointed as Black Stars coach in 2017, taking over from Israeli and former Chelsea manager Avram Grant.
