The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association has taken a decision to terminate the appointment of Black Stars Coach Charles Akonnor and his two Assistants with immediate effect.
This follows the receipt of the Technical Report from the Head Coach of the Senior National Team and the report from the Black Stars Management Committee following Ghana’s Group G World Cup qualifying matches against Ethiopia and South Africa.
The Executive Council after considering the 2 reports have decided to terminate its relationship with the Head Coach C. K Akonnor and the two Assistants.
The Executive Council has formed a three (3) Member Committee made up of Vice President Mark Addo, Upper East Regional Football Association Chairman, Alhaji Salifu Zida and Dr. Randy Abbey to find a Head Coach and Assistant Coaches for the Black Stars within the next 72 hours.
The Association wishes C.K Akonnor and his Assistants the very best in their future endeavors.
Ghana currently have three (3) points after the two opening matches.
The Black Stars will take on Zimbabwe in the next round of games in October 2021.
Meanwhile, GBC’s Sports Journalist Benjamin Willie Graham has questioned the sack of CK Akonnor. In his view, 72 hours to appoint a new Coach is a cause for concern.
Following CK Akonnor’s sack, a 3-Member Committee has been constituted to find a new Head Coach and Assistant Coaches for the Black Stars within the next 72 hours.
Coach C.K Akonnor got the boot-out because reports say he did not have a clear-cut plan for the Black Stars, and no Blue Print and Ghanaians were unsure if he could qualify Ghana for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
