Charles Kumi Gyamfi (born in 1929 in Accra ) is a retired Ghanaian footballer who is remarkable for being the first African player to play in Germany, when he joined Fortuna Düsseldorf in 1960.

After retiring as a player he became a coach, and career highlights include leading Ghana to the African Cup of Nations three times, making him the most successful coach in ACN history.

In January 2008 he publicly lamented the modern obsession of players with money rather than the love of the game.

His record was equalized by Hassan Shehata of Egypt who led his team to the title in 2006, 2008, and 2010
