Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has entreated his former teammates to engage in coaching for the development of football in the country.


Appiah has advised his former teammates to pick up coaching jobs in order to help develop upcoming players in the country with their 'experience'.

According to the Black Stars gaffer, retired footballers are not 'finished' and they must return as coaches to help develop talents.

"I believe we've all done our part in the past as footballers but that is not the end of the road for us. We can still return as coaches to help develop talents, " Appiah told Success FM.

"With the kind of experiences, we have gained throughout our careers, I am of the view that we are not finished. We can't easily divert to another aspect of life but with football, we can become the main coaches or part of the backroom staff.

"We need to join hands and give back to the society through the transfer of knowledge to the new generation and even in the process of doing so, one will be paid to reduce the pressure after retirement," he added.

The senior national team of Ghana coaching staff involves some former footballers including Ibrahim Tanko, Maxwell Konadu, and Richard 'Olele' Kingston
