The Chief Executive Officer of Bofoakwa Tano, Yaw Boateng Gyan, says Charles Kwablah Akonnor should not have accepted to coach the Black Stars after Kwasi Appiah was sacked.
Coach Kwasi Appiah appointed Charles Kwabla Akonnor as his deputy coach to understudy the national team.
Kwasi Appiah was later sacked and the job was handed over to Charles Kwablah Akonnor in January 2020.
According to the former Black Stars management committee member, Akonnor accepting the role as head coach of the Black Stars was a betrayal to Kwasi Appiah.
“If they sacked Kwasi Appiah, then it wasn’t appropriate to appoint CK Akonnor as his assistant”, he told Happy FM.
“CK Akonnor should have also rejected the offer when he was asked to take over the job from his boss Kwasi Appiah. It was a stab in the back.
“If the GFA claims the head coach (Kwasi Appiah) was not good then his deputy is also not competent for the job”.
The former National Organizer of the NDC also called for CK Akonnor’s sacking after Ghana’s defeat to South Africa in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
“In my view, we should be honest with ourselves and sack CK Akonnor. We have a lot of talents here in the country but the problem has to do with coaching and the way we select players to the Black Stars”.
