‘New’ Ghana FA never appointed C.K Akonnor as Black Stars assistant coach, says Sarfo


The football association chief has denied reports that they appointed the new Black Stars assistant coach

Ghana Football Association executive Council member Nana Oduro Sarfo has debunked reports suggesting that they appointed C.K Akonnor as the new assistant coach of the Black Stars after assuming office on Monday.

According to Sarfo, the plan to replace Ibrahim Tanko with Akonnor was hatched by the Normalisation Committee before they left office therefore they cannot take credits or backlashes of it.

“It is never true that the new Ghana FA under the leadership  of Kurt Okraku appointed CK Akonnor as the assistant coach of the Black Stars,” Sarfo told Asempa FM.

“The plan to appoint him to assist Kwesi Appiah ahead of the Afcon qualifiers was already there before we came to office so we basically have no hand in it,” he added.

Akonnor is expected to help Kwesi Appiah in preparing a formidable side that will be able to defeat South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers holding next month.
