Ghanaian coach Charles Akonnor Sacked

After poor performance in the World Cup qualification group, the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) have agreed to terminate the appointment of Black Stars Coach, Charles Akonnor and his two Assistants with immediate effect.

This follows the receipt of the technical reports from Akonnor and the Black Stars Management Committee, following Ghana’s Group G World Cup qualifying matches against Ethiopia and South Africa.

Ghana labored to a 1-0 home win over Ethiopia and then lost by the same score-line in South Africa in the first two games of its pool, in which only the top team advances to the next stage of qualifying.

The Executive Council after considering the two reports have decided to terminate their relationship with the Head Coach C. K Akonnor and the two Assistants.

The Executive Council have formed a three 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.
