Kwesi Appiah Is An 'Ingrate' - Sports Ministry
Spokesperson for the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Kofi Asare Brako has labelled former Ghana coach, Kwesi Appiah as an 'ingrate' after announcing his decision to report the Ghana FA to FIFA over his unpaid salaries.
Appiah, 60, after parting ways with the FA is yet to receive his five-month arrears from the country's football governing body.
However, Mr Brako accused the former Ghana captain of failing to show gratitude to the West African nation for not sacking him despite failing to win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
”Kwasi Appiah is ungrateful to report GFA to FIFA. He should know that when you report GFA you have reported Ghana to FIFA," Asare Brako told Kumasi-based Nhyira FM.
"FIFA will inquire about the contract document between the two parties and will make a judgement base on your achievement in the contract.
"He failed to perform his four mandates tasked to him in the contract but was not fired.
"He should have even thanked the GFA and the Sports Ministry for that”.
Asare Brako said Isreali coach Avram Grant was owned by the Ghana Football Association after his contract with Football governing body had expired but he never threatened to report either the FA or the Sports Ministry to FIFA.
”Avram Grant never reported Ghana to FIFA to have his arrears paid until the ministry settled him."
"What Kwasi Appiah is doing makes him ungrateful to Ghana. He should show gratitude to GFA and MoYS,”. he added.
Kwesi Appiah has been replaced by CK Akonnor on a two year deal.
