Sacked Ghana Coach Kwesi Appiah To Be Paid $180,000 Outstanding Salary

Kwesi Appiah will be paid his outstanding six months salary following his sacking as coach of Ghana Black Stars.

The soft-spoken gaffer was shown the exit door after the Ghana Football Association (GFA) dissolved all technical teams of the national teams.

Appiah ended his contract as Black Stars head coach three days ago and there was no clear news about his future until this decision taken by the GFA on Thursday night.

He will however be paid his six months unpaid salary — which will be $180,000.

The ex-international signed a two-year contract in May 2017 for a second stint with the Ghana national team.

Despite the initial running out in May last year, he was told to stay on for the two 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe -which he won.

Appiah had a disastrous Africa Cup of Nations campaign last year in Egypt, where the Black Stars got knocked out at the last 16 stage.

Ghana's next competitive match will be in March, 2020 when the second round qualifiers of the 2022 FIFA World Cup start.

Appiah qualified the Black Stars and coached them at the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil.
