Former Ghana boss, Kwasi Appiah, believes coaches of the senior national team, the Black Stars, should be given at least five years to work.
He says this is necessary because coaches come into the job without prior knowledge of the players they are coming to work with.
The two-time Ghana coach is convinced coaches can win laurels when given this period of time to manage the Black Stars.
“When it comes to the national team, the least the national team coach should get is five years,” the 62-year-old told Muftawu Nabila Abdulai on Prime Take.
“The reason is that you have no knowledge of the players and it will take about a year or two to get to know the mentality of the players, their performance level, and how to integrate them.
“The other two or three years, you are looking at how you can get to play to a certain identity, tactically for you and go out there and try to win.
“I don’t see why you should be given five years and you can’t win anything, then you’re not worth your salt, you should not think of even coaching.
“I think that, after five years, you are ready to win something for the nation.”
Kwasi Appiah coached the Black Stars for two years each in his two stints; from 2012 to 2014 and from 2017 to 2020, managing his last Ghana game in December 2019.
