The Ghana Football Association has appointed Kwesi Appiah as the permanent coach of the Black Stars.
This comes after a three-week headhunting process to find a successor for Serbian Goran Stevanovic-who was dismissed last month.
The ex-Ghana captain was appointed based on his experience with the team.
A Ghana FA statement read: “The Ghana Football Association has appointed James Kwesi Appiah as the substantive head coach of the Black Stars.
“The Executive Committee of the GFA confirmed the appointment of the former international at a meeting in Accra on Monday.
“The meeting was called to discuss the head-hunting exercise undertaken by the GFA to find a permanent Black Stars coach.
“Appiah will meet the Executive Committee of the GFA on Tuesday, 10 April, to formalize the deal.”
Former France captain Marcel Desailly, Carlos Dunga, Sven Goran Eriksson and Sellas Tetteh were linked with the coaching job at one point in time.
Appiah has been the assistant coach of the Black Stars since 2008 and was on the bench at the last FIFA World Cup finals in South Africa.
He led Ghana’s Olympic team to win a historic gold medal at the 2011 All Africa Games.
