BREAKING NEWS: Ghana FA sacks C.K Akonnor and his assistant coaches; check the reasons


The country’s football governing body has official parted ways with the Black Stars coach after only fourteen games in charge

Ghana Football Association has announced their decision to sack Black Starts head coach C.K Akonnor and his assistant coaches on Monday.

The 47-year-old took over from Kwesi Appiah last year after Ghana failed to win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations held in Egypt.

However, Akonnor has failed to live a remarkable mark as the Black Stars have been struggling to exert themselves in games or display quality football.

The Black Stars have won only one of their last four games played under Akonnor. He won only four games after playing fourteen matches with four ending in a defeat and two in stalemate.

“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,” a Ghana FA statement read.

“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 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 endeavours.

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,” the statement added.

AshesGyamera’s sources have revealed that an expatriate coach will likely replace Akonnor and former Ghana assistant coach Herve Renard is highly tipped to take over the mantle.
