Former Ghana coach, Charles Kwablan Akonnor has acknowledged that leading the Black Stars has been his greatest professional opportunity to date.
Akonnor, a former goalkeeper for Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak, was appointed the Black Stars’ head coach in January 2020.
Akkonor was appointed as the gaffer on a two-year deal following the dismissal of Kwesi Appiah.
However, following Ghana’s dismal start to the 2022 World Cup qualifiers last year, the 46-year-old was handed the door.
Akonnor was asked if he had any regrets about leading the Black Stars, and he reaffirmed that he didn’t, adding that it had been the biggest opportunity of his coaching career.
“No, I can’t say that. Working as Black Stars coach? It’s the biggest [for any coach],” he said JoySports Prime Take.
“It is the environment which was not conducive. I wish it had been better so that I could use my knowledge to help the nation, but I didn’t get it.
“It didn’t work out doesn’t mean I regret coaching the team,” he said.
The 48-year-old has coached Hearts of Oak, Asante Kotoko and AshantiGold in his managerial career.
