Sudan has resumed its interest in Ghanaian coach Kwasi Appiah, according to Oyerepa FM.

“It is true that Sudan would have liked to have had me as a coach. The Sudan FA approached me to manage their national team but I declined the offer.

“They wanted me to coach Al-Khartoum as well as the national team if I couldn’t leave the club at this time, but I explained that I couldn’t…” Appiah revealed this in an interview in 2016.

This interest was reignited again in January 2020 after Appiah’s second stint as Black Stars coach ended with no contract extension by the Ghana FA. revealed at the time that the president of the Sudan Football Association had personally reached out to Appiah over the Falcons of Jediane job.
