Official: Black Stars coach Akonnor and two assistants SACKED

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has terminated the appointment of Black Stars coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor and his two assistants with immediate effect.

This follows the receipt of the technical reports from the head coach of the senior national team and the Black Stars Management Committee on the opening two games against Ethiopia and South Africa in the African qualifiers to the 2022 Fifa World Cup.

The Executive Council – after considering the two reports on Monday – decided to terminate the GFA’s relationship with head coach Akonnor and his two assistants – David Duncan and Patrick Greveraars.

The Executive Council has formed a three (3) Member Committee made up of Vice President Mark Addo, Upper East Regional Football Association Chairman, Alhaji Salifu Zida and Dr. Randy Abbey to find a head coach and assistant coaches for the Black Stars within the next 72 hours.

“The Association wishes CK Akonnor and his assistants the very best in their future endeavours.”

In 11 matches since his arrival, Akonnor supervised Ghana to four wins, two drawn games and five defeats, the latest being the 1-0 loss to South Africa exactly a week ago.

Ghana currently have three (3) points after the two opening matches. The Black Stars will take on Zimbabwe in home-and-away legs in the next round of games in October 2021.
