Organizing Press Conference To Justify My Call Ups Will Make Me A Liar, Says Coach Kwesi Appiah
NOV 12, 2019 FOOTBALL NEWS

Coach Kwasi Appiah has insisted that it is irrelevant to hold press conferences and explain his choice of selection of players to the senior national team adding that he will make him a liar.

Several calls have been made for the coach to justify his call ups over the years.

"I have fielded this questions on numerous occasions from people but whether its me or any other person as a national team coach if you organize a press conference to explain reasons why you did not call player A or B you may be a liar at some point because you can't keep on repeating same thing every time.

He said that the pool of talents for the national team is so big that we can't give call ups to only a handful of people.

"The national team is not like a club side where you have like only 25 players with the national team the talent pool to call is huge compared to a club side.

"Most of the time we try to maintain the respect players have for us but maybe after a game or before a game a press conference can be done but not for call ups," he said.

Kwesi Appiah is currently preparing the Black Stars to play South Africa at the Cape Coast Stadium on Thursday, November 14.
