The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has officially announced C.K Akonnor as the head coach of the senior national team, the Black Stars.
The FA in a statement also said David Duncan will be Akonnor’s assistant.
Sources say government officials at the Sports Ministry had made their decision explicitly clear to the GFA that they want a local coach and nothing else.
C.K. Akunnor was drafted into the Black Stars as an assistant coach by Kwesi Appiah ahead of Ghana’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome.
The GFA has also named the rest of the Technical Team of the Black Stars as follows:
Najawu Issah - Goalkeepers Coach
Dr. Christ Adomoako - Team Doctor
Henry Martey - Welfare Officer
S. K. Ankomah - Masseur
George Nii Anum Amasa - Masseur
Daniel Yankey - Equipment Officer
Suleman Zampa - Equipment Officer
The GFA has also constituted the Management Committee of the Black Stars as follows:
George Amoako - Chairman
Akwasi Agyemang - Vice Chairman
Jones Alhassan Abu - Member
Sammy Kuffuor - Member
Fred Pappoe - Member
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Aliko Dangote, Africa's richest man, has hinted at a possible takeover of Premier League giants Arsenal, with the Nigerian business mogul declaring the takeover could happen in 2020 or 2021.
Dangote, a die-hard Arsenal fan, has been previously linked with the purchase of the club from Stan Kroenke — a deal that could gulp over $4 billion from his pocket.
