Comment on Sellas Tetteh

Sellas Tetteh is the only local coach the current crop of players will accord him the needed respect. He has been tried and tested to be a good coach. Stephen Appiah as his assistant will be an extra intrinsic motivation to the players due to his charismatic nature

Jeffrey Basile commented on who caused the main problem for the Black Stars:

In facts Kwesi Appiah is the cause of all this. The erstwhile GFA gave him all the necessary support and what have you. He was even flown to one of the Premier league clubs to under study their coach. He has assisted at least three expatriate Black Star coaches,had better quality of players compared to the current crop of players yet he disappointed us.

Gregory Nsiah Agyemang said:

If they sack the coach then all the players need to be sacked bcz they were called by him.... it's better we dissolve this team and abandon this qualifiers bcz it will be an exercise in futility... new players need to be scouted and called to train for the next qualifiers after this as this will save us a lot of money

What sort of rich CV of C K Akunnor did the F A depended on to employ him? the Man was sacked by both Hearts of Oak and Kotoko, and took Eleven Wise to relegation, his assistant, David Duncan was given the under 17 to the world cup and he managed only three drawn games to come back home. No experience from any of them. Let's invest and bring in a highly experienced coach and give him a free hand to work.

Francis Etsuah indicated:

No coach gfa should coach their team. Even president we give him four to mismanage the country before we came sack them through elections, this small black stars only four years u want like 3 coaches why

Kingsley Kwaku Braimah stated:

Find better players and stop sacking coaches. The players use in Ghana and South Africa games cannot even win against Hearts or Kotoko. You don't have the players you say i sack the coach.
