Black Stars head coach Kwesi Appiah has fended off calls for his resignation saying he is determined to keep his job.

The embattled coach who supervised a disastrous world Cup campaign in Brazil said he had built young and confident players whose Black Stars future are bright and would want to shepherd them.

He made the comment at a well attended press conference underway at the FA's offices in Accra, Wednesday.

Ghana's World Cup campaign was blighted by scandals and a disastrous first round exit with just one point out of a maximum nine.

Many have blamed the coach for poor tactics and poor results.
