The Sudanese Football Association has reportedly appointed James Kwesi Appiah, the former coach of Ghana’s national football team, as the new head coach for the senior men’s national team.

While the official announcement has yet to be made by Sudanese football authorities, Joy Sports News reported the appointment on Wednesday.

At the age of 63, Kwesi Appiah is set to take charge of the 1970 African champions for the upcoming three years. Notably, he brings with him a wealth of experience, having previously served as both captain and coach of the Ghanaian national team.

Appiah has gained significant recognition in Sudan for his ability to identify and develop young talents who have since become integral parts of the country’s national squad.

Prior to this role, he was tasked with assembling an Interim Management Committee for Asante Kotoko. His most recent major coaching role was as the head coach of the Ghana national team, during which he had a second stint from 2017 to 2020.

In the past three years, Appiah has been actively involved with the Kenpong Football Academy, where he held the position of sporting director.
