New Ghana Boss Kwesi Appiah Optimistic Of Winning Titles

Ghana boss Kwesi Appiah is confident he can end the country�s long wait for an African title next year. The ever-smiling 51-year-old was officially unveiled to the media as the new coach of the Black Stars on Tuesday after sealing a two-year renewable mandate with the Ghana Federation. He has been tasked with the responsibility of winning next year�s continental showpiece in South Africa and also to reach the semi-finals of the Fifa World Cup in Brazil. The Black Stars has remained trophy-less since the Black Stars last clinched the title in 1982. There is therefore the growing demand for the ex-Asante Kotoko boss to guide the team to win the title in South Africa and in the process make a case for his compatriots. Appiah, who last coached the country�s Olympic team to win their first ever gold medal at the 2011 All Africa Games in Maputo, says he�s bracing himself up for the challenge to win the titles. �The most important thing is to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations next year,� Appiah said �I will try my best to win it. I believe I can do only this with the support of the FA and the media as well. �I will also need the fans to rally behind us with prayers and I believe we�ll thrive,�
