Black Stars Coach CK Akonnor sacked
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has terminated the contract of Black Stars coach Charles Akonnor after an unimpressive start to the 2022 World Cup campaign.
“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,” the Ghana FA said in a statement on Monday.
The entire backroom staff of the Black Stars has also been dissolved 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 two reports have decided to terminate its relationship with the Head Coach C. K Akonnor and the two Assistants,” the release added.
Subsequently, the executive council has formed a three 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 GFA wished C.K Akonnor and his assistants the very best in their future endeavours.
Ghana currently have three points after the two opening matches in the qualifiers.
The Black Stars will take on Zimbabwe in the next round of games in October 2021.
