George Amoakoh: Black Stars Chief demands better from Akonnor

Black Stars Management Committee Chairman, George Amoakoh has urged the team’s handlers to improve their performances.

Ghana failed to pick the much-needed point to qualify for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in their fourth group game against Sudan.

They lost 1-0 to the Falcons of Jediane in the late stages of the match.

As the leader of the management team, the football administrator believes that his outfit must be improved by the technical handlers led by Charles Akonnor.

“I hope that the technical team would sit up and correct all the errors; the errors that ensured that we could not score a goal.

“All the game was centered in the midfield and our incursions upfront did not yield any dividend,” Mr Amoakoh told Graphic Sports.

“They should ensure that they are able to penetrate defences and score goals; that is the only way to win matches.

“We did not achieve what we sought to achieve; we thought we could either draw or win the game but it didn’t come off that way, and I think we need to learn a few lessons from that.”

The King Faisal Chief Executive Officer also criticized the tactical discipline of the team and added that the team finishes game with eye-pleasing football.

“It didn’t go the way we wanted; if it doesn’t go the way you want what does it mean? I am not a technical person to say the selection was bad.

“The only thing I can say is that how we played did not generate the needed goals to win the game.

“I would wish that the technical team do their best to ensure that subsequent games are won and won beautifully,” he concluded.

The Black Stars will wait until March 2021 when the next group fixtures against South Africa and Sao Tome to book their ticket for the continental showpiece in Cameroon.
