He quashed earlier reports in the media that the Ghana FA had shortlisted three coaches.
“The job is open to all. Once you are a competent coach. We have not made any shortlist and we will in due course”.
“There’s pressure to hire competent coaches, we’re not looking at race or color but just competent coaches,” he said.
Relatedly, former Black Stars coach James Kwesi has re-applied for the role of Appiah.
This comes after Appiah had earlier said he was open to returning to the Black Stars as head coach.
The 62-year-old already has two caps with the national team, having first led Ghana to the World Cup in Brazil from 2012 to 2014.
Appiah was reappointed as Black Stars coach in 2017, taking over from Israeli manager Avram Grant.
However, his tenure ended on December 31, 2019 after the Ghana Football Association (GFA) denied him the opportunity to renew it.
