Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has debunked reports that he was nearly manhandled in traffic in Accra by an exasperated Black Stars fan.
According to the report, was tasked to lead Ghana to end their 37-year title drought at the AFCON in Egypt but failed escaped physical assault from the angry Ghanaian young man in Ghana’s capital, Accra yesterday while driving in traffic.
The incident, which is said to have happened at the newly opened under-bridge road that connects Spintex to East Legon was very embarrassing the coach might consider resigning as the coach for the Nation Men’s soccer team.
The coach was in his ash-coloured 2015 Toyota four-wheel SUV registered, heading towards East Legon when the young man spotted him.
Speaking in his native Fante language, the young man harassed Kwesi Appiah as the traffic slowly moved: “Are you a coach? You are very stupid. The whole of Ghana, you are the most useless. We don’t want you as a coach. Who told you that you are a coach? You are lazy, no intelligence. You don’t know anything about football and coaching.”
While the angry young man vented his anger on Kwasi Appiah, he pretended to be receiving a telephone call as the verbal assault and abuse flowed.
Well, reacting to the viral news, Kwesi Appiah told GHANASoccernet.com that the reports are false as such never happened.
‘It’s never true I was attacked by anybody. People are cooking stories but it’s not true,” he said.
