Renowned lawyer and member of the ruling New Patriotic Party [NPP], Gabby Otchere-Darko sent a pregnant message to the Ghanaian Football Association following the sacking of CK Akonnor, the head coach of the Black Stars.
Akonnor was sacked by the Ghanaian Football Association on Monday after a string of poor results, most recently Ghana’s 1-0 defeat by South Africa.
This follows the receipt of the technical report from the senior national team head coach and the report from the Black Stars Management Committee after Ghana’s qualifiers for World Cup Group G against Ethiopia and South Africa.
The Executive Board, after examining the two reports, has decided to end the relationship with the trio.
However, Mr Otchere Darko has expressed the hope that Mr Akonnor’s successor will work with confidence and authority and, above all, make the Black Stars shine for the World Cup in Qatar and beyond.
He made the remarks in a post on his official Twitter page.
“GFA is parting ways with Charles Akonnor and his assistants – may the next coach enjoy the respect of the players and management, work with confidence and authority, and bring the black stars to Qatar and beyond,” he tweeted.
Akonnor was in charge of the Black Stars for 21 months, winning only 4 of his 10 games as head coach, with three draws and three losses.
After two games played, the Black Stars took 3rd place with three points. The Black Stars will face Zimbabwe in the next game round in October 2021.
The Ghanaian Football Association is expected to name his replacement in the coming days.
