My Afcon 2021 dream for Ghana was destroyed by someone – C.K Akonnor

Former Ghana coach Charles Akonnor dreamt of coaching the national team at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations but his dream was shattered.

The former Black Stars captain was sacked, two months to the Afcon in Cameroon.

Speaking in an interview with Joy Sports, Akonnor revealed the disappointment of not heading the team at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Serbian gaffer Milovan Rajevac led the Stars to the tourney and exited in the group stages.

“[Being the head coach at the 2021 AFCON] was a dream but one way or the other, somebody shut it down, who that person is, I don’t know.

“I wouldn’t say so [I would have done better than what Milovan Rajevac did], but I had a plan and if that plan had worked, maybe we would have done better than we did.

“At least, the FA should have allowed me to go to the AFCON and come back because my contract was even running out. I was hurt but I am better now.”

Ghana’s focus is on the 2022 Fifa World Cup where they hope to produce success after the terrible display at the Afcon 2021.
