Former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah says he is open to the idea of coaching Black Stars in the future.
Speaking in an interview, the 39-year-old said that he would like to return to former club Accra Hearts of Oak to some managerial experience to prepare him for the Senior national team job.
“It’s always good to start from somewhere and I’m not rushing to the Senior national team. I have to get the experience, so getting the experience you have to that from somewhere,” Stephen Appiah told Betway.
“Why not join Accra Hearts of Oak and I will learn under the club’s coach if I have the chance to handle the U-17 that’s where I will start from. But wait until I get my badge then we will see from there.”
Appiah made 67 appearances for the Black Stars and notched 14 goals. The 39-year-old is the current coordinator for all the National teams.
In a related development, Stephen Appiah has named his all-time Black Stars XI.
In his best XI he settled on Richard Kingson in the post and chose Frank Amankwah, Patrick Allotey, John Mensah and Samuel Osei Kuffour as the back four.
The former Juventus midfielder played Michael Essien and himself in the central midfield, while he deployed Laryea Kingston and Sulley Muntari to the right and left wings respectively.
Stephen Appiah in attack preferred Abedi Pele as the supporting striker behind, Asamoah Gyan as the arrow-head.
