Kwesi Appiah names three Ghana players who can be great coaches in future

Former Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has tipped Asamoah Gyan, Andre Ayew and Michael Essien to become great coaches if they decide to make a career in management. 

The trio, according to Appiah have shown great leadership qualities during his time as coach of the Black Stars but pointed out that Essien would have to improve his interpersonal skills.

Kwesi Appiah insists the ex-Chelsea star’s reserved nature could be a problem in coaching.

“Not every player wants the coaching job because most of these players feel there is a lot of pressure in being coach,” he told Otec FM.

“But players who become coaches are players who are leaders on the pitch. They know how to control their players and motivate them on the pitch.

“Even after retiring these player career that leadership attitude and keep that will to be coaches.”

Asked if he can name any of the players he coached can be managers in future, he gave the three names.

“I think Asamoah Gyan has the qualities, Andre has the quality of motivating players and so if he become a coach one day I won’t be surprise.

“Someone like Essien, he can be a good coach but his only problem will be to learn how to get close to his players because he is someone who is very reserved.”
