Head of the Ghana Football Association technical directorate Francis Oti Akenten has described Maxwell Konadu as a genius for reaching the final of the CHAN tournament.
Akenten, a member of CAFâ€™s Technical Study Group for the tournament, praised the former Asante Kotoko coach for his tactical ingenuity and team selection.
He points out that Konadu has brought competition in the squad.
â€œMaxwell is a genius no doubt about his understanding of the game,â€ Akenten told GHANASoccernet.com.
â€œHe carefully used every player in the team and got them fighting for the shirt.
â€œHe has used every member of the team except the two keepers and I canâ€™t remember when last that happened in a competition. For me I know his capabilities and he will even get better.â€
