Former Ghana captain Appiah taking coaching course

Former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah, who hung up his boots in 2015, has disclosed he is currently undergoing a coaching course and hopes to become a football manager in the near future.

The 36-year-old started his career with local giants Hearts of Oak before leaving the shores of Ghana to join Italian club Udinese in 1997. However, it was during his time at Juventus that he became a cult hero with a series of inspiring performances.

“I am into some projects and player management. I normally don’t like talking about these things but I can say a lot of things now,” Appiah told Citi FM.

“I have finally enrolled for my coaching certificates and even if I do not become a coach I think it’s important I take up the course because you never know,” he added.

Appiah led Ghana to their first Fifa World Cup tournament in 2006 in Germany and was also a member of the squad at the 2010 edition in South Africa. He was capped 64 times, scoring 14 goals.

Appiah has been named Peace Ambassador for the upcoming general elections in Ghana.
