CK Akonnor has emotionally bid farewell to Ghana’s senior team, the Black Stars, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Minister of Sports, Mustapha Ussif, Kwesi Appiah, the Ghanaian Football Association, after confirming his departure.
The 47-year-old was dismissed from the GFA along with his assistants after an inconspicuous performance in Ghana’s World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia and South Africa.
Coach Akonnor won four or two draws and lost four of his ten games as a team leader.
“I am grateful to HE President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Ministry of Sports, my former boss Kwesi Appiah, GFA leadership, colleagues I have worked with, players and Ghanaians for the opportunity to serve,” said the former Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak gawkers wrote on his Twitter.
“I wish the team all the best, thank you Ghana.”

Coach Akonnor replaced Kwesi Appiah and qualified the team for the Africa Cup in 2021. However, he had an unconvincing start to qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. He won 0-1 against Ethiopia and lost 0-1 to South Africa.
