Ghana national team parts ways with manager James Kwesi Appiah

Friday September 12th, 2014

The Ghana Football Association has announced that it will "mutually" part ways with manager James Kwesi Appiah.

Appiah has coached the Ghana national team for the past two years.

On Wednesday, Ghana beat Togo 3-2 in African Cup of Nations qualification. Last weekend, they drew 1-1 with Uganda.

"The GFA wishes to thank Mr. Appiah for his diligent service to the country as the coach of the Black Stars for the past two years," the Ghanaian FA said in a release.

At the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Ghana did not win any of their three Group G games. They drew Germany 1-1 and lost 2-1 to both the United States and Portugal.

Multiple reports state that former Ghana manager Milovan Rajevac could take over for Appiah. Rajevac coached the team from 2008 to 2010. 

Ghana's next match will be a qualifier against Guinea in October.
