Ghana U-20 in danger of missing out on Konadu for AYC

Published on: 29 November 2012

Coach Maxwell Konadu might not lead the Ghana U-20 side to next year’s African Youth Championships.

This was after a conflict of assignments between the Black Satellites and the senior national team was detected by the Ghana FA.

The Black Stars are billed to play a 2014 World Cup qualifier against Sudan in March – around the same time the youth championship commences in Algeria.

Konadu who is the substantive assistant coach of the Black Stars was brought in to help out the U-20 team on an interim basis.

He however succeeded in turning the fortunes of the Black Satellites around to qualify them for the AYC.

The Ghana FA’s preference is to have the ex Asante Kotoko coach lead the team to Algeria but Ghana’s crucial World Cup qualifier could prevent this from happening.

The association is thus looking at all possibilities including replacing Konadu for the tournament in Algeria.

“We have not hidden our desire to have Maxwell (Konadu) for the tournament but for the Black Stars game in March,” Ghana U-20 Management Committee chairman George Afriyie told

“As a result, things have been made difficult. Maxwell (Konadu) himself appears willing to be with the team (U-20 team).

“But we also have to make sure that the senior team has its full compliment for the crucial World Cup qualifier.

“So we are looking at options, but I can tell you it will eventually be a difficult decision to take either ways.”

The Black Stars will host Sudan in the World Cup qualifier on March 22, 2013 – just six days after the African Youth Championships kicks off in Algeria.

    Kenneth I think you are very matured. I respect you. You have shown this Identity Fraudster calling himself Randy Abbey how to be civilised. And Ghanaba is right it looks like this guy is a DOPE HEAD like this Kojo Moscow. Their madness look the same. He needs a psychiatrist and a braain scan. Anybody reading what he has written will know the he is a Nutter. I will not be surprised if he has got a Brain Tumour or is in the early stages of mental illness. He indeed belong to the Mental Asylum.

    Mr Editor this person who call himself Randy Abbey sound more like somebody who is on cocaine or someone whose heart has been severely broken. It looks more like this guy who calls himself Kojo Moscow. They use the same abusive language are full of the Green Eye Monster of Jealousy. They lack ideas or are unable to communicate so they feel happy if they attack those who are smarter than them. He has changed his name because he knows you will not publish his stupidity here or send it down the drain. Such people don't belong here. They belong to the mental asylum, ha ha ha.

    Kenneth you have not only shown that you are polite and cultured but also great Christian principles. I salute you. I have been enjoying and reading your comments and was waiting to see how you will response to this devil. It' is good that you have asked forgiveness for this guy who seems to be angry, jealous and full of evil. In doing so you have placed a curse on him. He must show regrettness and ask forgiveness himself otherwise this curse will follow him to his death unless he repents and get rid of his evil nature. This is real!

    Good Luck to you "Randy Abbey". And thanks for your abuse and insults. I will not do that to you because unlike you I was brought up by decent parents. Unfortunately, the insults will not help take away the emotional and mental turmoil and pain that you are experiencing now. And don't try to steal decent people's identity to commit sin. May God Forgive you.

    Why not draft in Sellas Tetteh to work alongside Konadu as the Satellites begin their preparations for the tournament. Max Konadu can leave Sellas in charge of the Satellites for the week that the Black Stars play Sudan. It is all about resources and proper management I think. Surely we need Maxwell for both Stars and Satellites.
