I never wanted Kwesi Appiah’s job – Ibrahim Tanko lifts lid on his Black Stars departure


Former Black Stars assistant coach Ibrahim Tanko has lifted the lid that led to his departure from the senior national team.

According to reports back in 2019, the former Black Stars coach left the position following a rift between himself and then head coach, Kwesi Appiah.

According to Tanko these reports were false and were peddled by individuals who had their own motives.

“I heard a lot of things.

“In Ghana, we talk a lot, that Kwesi said I was undermining because I wanted his job.

“I never did that but I did not want to argue with him.

“Why do I have to undermine you after working with you for two years?

“I know there are a lot of people whose job it is to spread rumours just to earn favours.

“I can assure you that afterwards coach Kwesi Appiah has found out the truth.

“He knows that what he said was not the truth,” he told Sports journalist Muftawu Nabila in an interview.

After leaving the assistant Black Stars coaching job, Tanko has gone on to handle Ghana’s U – 23 side and is now head coach of the Black Stars B team.
