1965 AFCON winner Rev Kofi Pare has suggested that Black stars coach ,Akwesi Appiah must coach a local club here in Ghana to gain an experience to win the AFCON trophy for us

‘’Now football is about money so most of these players will like to ply their trade in Europe. Its about time the leaders of the nation contact retired players so that the dialogue and plan towards this issue.
It’s about time the coaches invite retired players to give an advice to these young players when they are in camp. We see a lot of mistakes when they are playing and we will be glad to correct them
He continued that government still owes them when they were promised a house each and some amount of money if they win the African cup in 1965 but they were given part of the money. Rev Pare continued that he is still waiting for his house
