The AFC Wimbledon forward has showered praise on the Coach Avram Grant
Ghana international Kwesi Appiah has described the Israeli gaffer as one of the best scouts in football.
Appiah was handed a debut call-up to the senior national team of Ghana two years by the former Chelsea trainer.
“It was a great experience to play in the Africa Cup of Nations, in fact it was the highlight of my career,” Appiah told his club’s official website.
“Ghana got a new manager (Avram Grant) before the finals, and he put his own spin on things,”
“He was scouting players from all the divisions – he wasn’t bothered about the level they were playing at. He watched me, and then I got a call-up to the provisional squad,”
“I managed to make the cut for the final 23, and it certainly helped when I scored in a pre-tournament friendly against a Portuguese team.
“When the tournament started I wasn’t in the team, but I came on for my debut in the third group game against South Africa, the host country – and the rest is history.”
Appiah was member of the Ghana squad that won silver at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
