Ghana's No. 1

Head coach of the Black Stars, Charles Kwablan Akonnor says he is open to sharing ideas with other technical handlers of the various national teams.

According to the former Ghana captain, there should be uniformity of system of play among the national teams to aid easy transition from the youth teams to the senior team.

“We need to understand that we must have a set-up which each and every [national] team will follow from top to bottom,” he told the GFA media.

“So if you’re playing for instance 4-3-3 or 4-3-2-1, [system that] the Meteors used during the 2019 Africa U-23 Cup of Nations, the journey [of players] to the top will not be long. We must have that understanding because that is what they do out there,” he added.

He continued: “[National team] coaches must have a relationship so that we can share ideas. We should be able to share ideas because I don’t know it all, they also don’t k now it all. We need to help each other. And that is a barrier in-between the coaches, it’s a fact.

“I am open. I want a situation where the national set-up will have that bond in terms of tactical play. Before I got into the national team, I was in the Under-20. Otto Pfister saw me in an international match. The following week he called me into the Black Stars because there were similarities in the style of play and what he needs and it was easier.”
