Ghana FA sacks Black Stars coach Akonnor

The coach of the Ghanaian national team, Charles Akonnor has been sacked.

The decision to sack the 47-year-old Ghanaian was taken by the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association on Monday.

Akonnor was sacked with his two assistants, David Duncan and Patrick Graveres.

In an official statement, the GFA said: “[the decision to sack Akonnor] 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 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 haven’t posted the best results in their World Cup qualifying campaign so far, with the Black Stars collecting only three points from two games.

They will take on Zimbabwe in the next round of qualifiers in October 2021.
