Stars coach Appiah invited for CAF symposium in May
27th March 2013
Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah will participate in a symposium to review the Africa Cup of Nations from 11-13 May in Cairo, Egypt.
The three-day symposium will discuss the technical and tactical aspects of the last two editions of the Africa Cup of Nations, 2012 (Gabon and Equatorial Guinea) and 2013 (South Africa).
Information gathered by GNA Sports indicates that Appiah, together with the Technical Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Francis Oti Akenteng will represent Ghana at the event that will bring together technical brains from the National Associations affiliated to CAF.
There will also be resource persons including CAF Football Development Director, Abdel Moneim Hussein as well others from FIFA.
The session will also provide a platform for the Stars trainer to exchange ideas with his counterparts and refresh his knowledge of the game.
It will be the first time Appiah will be attending the session initiated in 2010 after the continental showpiece event in Angola. Ghana was represented at maiden edition by then coach Milovan Rajevac.
The Black Stars placed a disappointing fourth at last two editions of the Africa Cup of Nations, both losing to Mali in the third-place playoff.
