Former Black Stars head coach, Charles Kwablan Akonnor, has revealed he was compelled to hand call-ups to some players during his tenure as the gaffer of the team.
Akonnor was appointed as the head of the senior national team in January 2020 but was shown the exit in September 2021 after just 10 games in charge of Ghana.
The former Black Stars skipper was heavily criticised on most occasions for his player selection prior to games but revealed it is no secret that the leadership of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) imposed players on him.
“This is public knowledge,” he said on Prime Take which airs on Joy Sports.
“Many people out there just talk but they have no idea what was happening inside. Apart from Covid, it was a challenge controlling player call-ups.”
In his tenure as head coach, the 48-year-old won four games and drew two, losing the other four before being replaced by Milovan Rajevac.
