The Sudanese FA has announced the appointment of former Ghana coach, James Kwesi Appiah as their new head coach of the country, according to Africa football journalist, Micky Junior.
According to the report, Kwesi Appiah has signed a 3-year deal with the Sudan FA.
Kwesi Appiah has coached in Sudan with Al Khartoum in 2014 and was recently named part of Asante Kotoko’s Interim Management Committee.
The experienced gaffer has rich experience as a national team coach having deputized expatriates, Claude Le Roy and Milovan Rajevac between 2007 and 2012.
He took permanent charge in 2012 and led the team to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil – making him the first Black African coach to achieve that feat.
He led Ghana’s U-23 team to win the then All Africa Games in 2011 in Maputo Mozambique.
Appiah, 63, was given a new two-year contract in May 2014. After the country exited the World Cup in the group stages, Appiah defended his team. He left his position as Ghana manager by mutual consent in September 2014.
