Ex-Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah recounts clashing with Dr. Kofi Amoah over $35,000 salary

Former Black Stars head coach, James Kwesi Appiah has opened up on the kind of working relationship he had with Normalisation Committee chairman Dr. Kofi Amoah.

The pair had to work together during the second stint of Coach Kwesi Appiah with the Black Stars at a time football in the country had been brought to its knees.

Speaking to Joy News in a one-on-one interview, Coach Kwesi Appiah has disclosed how Dr. Kofi Amoah threatened to sack him after a disagreement on his $35,000 salary.

He notes that he stood his ground and insisted on not allowing the threats to affect him.

“He threatened to sack me but I told him I am not afraid of being sacked. Those threats, I have heard them several times but I’m not the type that those threats get to me.

“He had a conversation with me about my contract and he was thinking of reducing my salary, but I told him look, you can’t reduce my salary, then he should take the job.

“He thought I didn’t deserve the [$35,000] salary I was on and when you do that, you are disrespecting whoever you are dealing with,” Coach Kwesi Appiah said.

Currently, Coach Kwesi Appiah is attempting to take the Black Stars head coach job for the third time.

He has applied to be considered for the vacant head coach job.
