Ghana’s deputy coach Maxwell Konadu: My appointment is a dream come true

The assistant coach of the Black Stars is upbeat about his new post and promised to give his best as the Ghana FA overhauls the country's backroom staff
The newly appointed deputy coach of Ghana, Maxwell Konadu, has described his new post as “a dream come true” and “a life time opportunity”.

The Ghana Football Association announced his appointment last week as part of a backroom staff overhaul of the Black Stars as Ghana prepare for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

Speaking to, Konadu said partnering head coach, Kwesi Appiah, to steer the tactical affairs of the senior national team is one of the best decisions ever made in the history of Ghana football.

“We both played at club level [Asante Kotoko] and have worked together to win the All Africa Games [2011] so we’re not new to each other,” Konadu said.

“For me, I think the Black Stars will experience one of the best moments under our tutelage.”

The Asante Kotoko coach added, “My appointment is a dream come true and I’ll give off my best as I have always done everywhere I find myself. I’m most grateful to the GFA.

“I’ll urge all Ghanaians to support us because we have to believe in our own people to make it.”
