Ghana’s senior national team head coach, CK Akonnor has stated that, its his desire and aim to win the Africa Cup of Nations for the four times winners.
The Black Stars coach CK Akonnor in an interview with Kumasi-based Kessben FM revealed his topmost priority as a Black Stars coach.
“My aim and mission is to end the long trophy drought of the Black Stars and win the AFCON tournament for Ghana”, he sald.
Ghana are without an Africa Cup of Nations trophy since their last gold medals in Libya in 1992 but has been to the final three times since then losing twice to Côte d’Ivoire on penalties both in 1992 and 2015 respectively as well as a defeat to Egypt by a lone goal in Angola in 2010.
The former Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC and Accra Hearts of Oak coach, CK Akonnor, now the coach of the Stars called on Ghanaians to support the team to achieve his goal.
“Winning the AFCON won’t come easy at all and I therefore urge all Ghanaians to come on board and offer their endless support to the Black Stars in our quest to win the coveted AFCON trophy again.
Ghana has nine points from four matches in the AFCON Qualifiers and would secure a place in the finals if they avoid defeat in their last two games against South Africa and Sao Tome & Principe.
