Appiah already has two caps with the national team, his first from 2012 to 2014 when he led Ghana to the World Cup in Brazil.
He was reappointed as Black Stars coach in 2017, taking over from former Chelsea and Portsmouth manager Avram Grant.
However, his tenure ended in December 2019 after the GFA denied him the opportunity to renew it. Last week, Appiah announced that he had applied to coach the national team for the third time and said he had yet to receive any response.
“Yes, I have applied for the vacant role but I am still waiting to hear back from the Ghana FA” He told the BBC.
“I don’t want to do interviews on a job application until I get a response. As we spoke, I did not hear anything from him (GFA).
Meanwhile, Appiah suggested applying for the Black Stars job to correct the misconception that local coaches are not good enough.
“Even though I had no intention of applying for the position, I decided to do so later to correct the misconception that no local coach is qualified for the Black Stars job.” he told Graphic Sports.
“I thought the GFA was looking for a new coach as I did not hear any announcement inviting applications from interested coaches.
“So when I heard that many foreign coaches had already applied, I decided to apply to put it on record that local coaches have what it takes to handle the Black Stars.”
Ghana are without a coach after Otto Addo stepped down following the team’s group-stage exit from the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
