Ghana Coach Explains Why He Benched Kwadwo Asamoah On Saturday


Kwesi Appiah left Inter Milan player Kwadwo Asamoah on the bench in Ghana’s 1-0 win over Kenya on Saturday.And in a bid to explain his decision, Appiah revealed that it was due to solely tactical basis and no other reason.

Gotzepe defender Lumor Agbenyenu was rather handed a starting berth ahead of the Inter Milan player with the coach disclosing that he was contemplating on which position to use him at some point .

”Actually Kwadwo Asamoah was in my plans, as to whether he will start or sit on the bench you know I have to make the final decision,” Appiah told the media when asked about why he benched the experienced player.

”For sometime now I have been using Lumor , and I believe that he had to start so that along line I may bring Kwadwo in. I was looking Kwadwo in a way that I might use him at the back or use him in the midfield role. So I decided to keep him on the bench for now so as the game went on I will think of whether to bring him or not.”

Kwadwo Asamoah could be starting for Ghana on Tuesday when they face Mauritius in an international friendly game at the Accra sports stadium.
