Former Black Stars coach James Kwesi Appiah is in line for the vacant Black stars job.

Appiah is hoping to handle the team for the third time following Otto Addo’s resignation as head coach of the side.

Otto Addo resigned as head coach of the team following the Black stars disappointing exit in the group stages at the just ended FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The former Kotoko manager admitted to interest in the job and confirmed he has applied for the vacant head coach role.

“It is true, I have applied for the job,” he told Sompa Sports. “When I heard the FA saying no Ghanaian has applied, I felt that being a Ghanaian, I had to apply to show we can prove ourselves, so I added mine to the foreign list.”

Technical director to the Black stars Chris Hughton has also shown interest in the job and he is a lot of bookmakers favorite to land the job.

Appiah managed the Black Stars across two spells and led Ghana to the 2014 FIFA World Cup where they exited at the group stages.
