When Kwesi Appiah was manager of the Black Stars, Amoah was the chairman of a committee formed by FIFA and the government in 2018 to oversee football administration.

According to Appiah, he did not have a good relationship with Dr Amoah because the latter tried to impose his wishes on him.

Appiah told Joys Sports in an interview that he was threatened with job loss and a salary cut after refusing to do Kofi Amoah’s bidding.

“He threatened to sack me but I told him I am not afraid of being sacked. Those threats, I have heard them several times but I’m not the type that those threats get to me,” Appiah said on Prime Take on Joy News.

“He had a conversation with me about my contract and he was thinking of reducing my salary, but I told him look, you can’t reduce my salary, then he should take the job.

“He thought I didn’t deserve the [$35,000] salary I was on and when you do that, you are disrespecting whoever you are dealing with.”

Appiah has confirmed applying for the job following the departure of Otto Addo.

Your Insults and Criticisms Have Made Me Stronger – Asamoah Gyan

Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan claims insults and criticisms shaped him into a strong individual.

Gyan recalls how he faced severe backlash after he missed an open goal against Namibia during the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations.

Two years later, he was heavily criticised for missing a penalty against Uruguay in the 2010 World Cup, and he was forced to leave the national team due to another penalty miss in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.

“It made me a strong guy. All my life, I was pampered and that was how I developed that tough skin,” he said on The Day Show on TV3.

“Statistically we were ahead. Ghanaians thought we were going to beat them [Namibia] like 20-0. And it was one of those days. I wasn’t lucky. I think I was one of the best players on the field but I wasn’t lucky.

“One opportunity that I got at an acute angle. The goalkeeper fumbled and the ball dropped. The keeper was out and I just hit the ball wide.

“And the following day…eii! That was the first time I experienced criticism. So there were just insulting. It was really bad.”

Gyan, who hasn’t played in two years, holds the record for the most goals scored by a Black Stars player. He has scored 51 goals.
