Ghana's No. 1

Thank you Ghana- Sacked Black Stars coach shows gratitude to Prez Akufo-Addo, GFA and fans

Published on: 14 September 2021

Former Ghana coach, Charles Kwablan Akonnor has expressed gratitude to President of the country Nana Akufo-Addo, the leadership of the GFA and fans following his sacking. 

The former Black Stars captain was axed as coach of the senior national team, after an uninspiring start to the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Under the leadership of Akonnor, Ghana won four games, lost five and drew two matches, prompting the FA to show him the exit door.

Following his departure, the ex-Kotoko coach paid tribute all who supported him during his time as coach.

However, conspicuously missing was the name of the President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku.

"I’m grateful to H.E President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo,the Sports Ministry,my former boss Kwesi Appiah, the leadership of the GFA, colleagues I worked with, players and Ghanaians for the opportunity to serve. Wishing the team all the best Thank you Ghana," he wrote on Twitter.

 

Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association has set up a three man committee to look for a new Black Stars coach in the next 72 hours.

"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 FA wrote on their official website.

The Black Stars will next face Zimbabwe in October in a double header FIFA World Cup qualifier.
