The former Black skipper became the first indigene to qualify the Black Stars for the FIFA World Cup in 2014.

He was however, sacked after the Black Stars failed to progress from the group stage in the Mundial amidst player boycott over the delay in the payment of appearance fees.

And Kofi Manu says the deputy Sports Minister at the time was the one behind Appiah's dismissal.
