Former Black Stars deputy coach Ibrahim Tanko has urged Ghanaian massively rally behind coach Charles Akonnor to end the country’s long wait for an AFCON trophy.
Ghana, four-time African Champions have not won the AFCON title for 39 years since last winning it in 1982.
The West African powerhouse have since 1982 lost in finals to Ivory Coast (1992), Egypt (2010) and the Ivorians again in 2015 under former Chelsea manager Avram Grant.
Ibrahim Tanko, a former player and coach of the national team is still eyeing the head coach role of the four times African champions but insists it’s time to support current gaffer C.K Akonnor ahead of Cameroon 2022.
“I think every coach will love to coach the Black Stars,” he told Joy Sports.
“I always take this advice from my brother Anthony Baffoe who tells me God’s time is the best.
“If God ordains that I’m going to be a Black Stars coach so be it if not, it’s not only Black Stars that you can coach.
“The experience I have, outside, club, national team, and all those things, I don’t know what I have to do to get the job.”
Tanko was assistant to Kwasi Appiah at 2019 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt as the Black Stars surprisingly exited at the round of 16.
“We have a coach, let’s all support him, and let’s hope that we are going to break this our 30-40 years of African Cup of nations winning cup,” added Ibrahim Tanko.
