GFA sacks Black Stars coach, CK Akonnor and Assistants

After a meeting on Monday, the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) have terminated the appointment of Black Stars Coach Charles Akonnor and his two Assistants with immediate effect.

This follows the receipt of the Technical Report from the Head Coach of the Senior National Team and the report from the Black Stars Management Committee following Ghana’s Group G World Cup qualifying matches against Ethiopia and South Africa.

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

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.

Ghana currently have three points after the opening two games of the World Cup qualifiers.

Akonnor, who was appointed in January 2020, took charge of 10 games for the Black Stars winning just four games.

In his 20 month stay, he managed to qualify the Black Stars to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations which will take place in Cameroon next year.

The Black Stars will take on Zimbabwe in the next round of games in October 2021.
