Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has finally reacted to reports that he was attacked by an irate fan in traffic.
Coach Appiah has laughed off reports that he was attacked in traffic by a worried Black Stars fan.
The 58-year-old trainer has been at the receiving end of vile attacks in traditional and social media after the team’s exit against Tunisia on penalties at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.
The hashtag #dropthatcoach trended for hours after their exit to Tunisia on penalties after 1-1- in regulations.
"It’s never true I was attacked by anybody. People are cooking stories but it’s not true,” Appiah is quoted by GHANASoccernet.com.
Appiah returned for a second spell in charge of the West African nation, having led the team to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
He became the first black coach to qualify Ghana to their third successive world cup in Brazil.
His previous stint as Black Stars coach came to an end after Ghana failed to advance from the group stages at Brazil 2014.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee reportedly wants their mandate extended after their current tenure runs out.

They were initially expected to complete their mandate in March, but their term was extended by FIFA following delays in implementing certain things at the FA.
