Former Black Stars player Augustine Arhinful says Black Stars coach C.K. Akunnor has all it takes to succeed as the coach of the senior national team.
According to him, C.K. Akunnor has all the experience from his playing days that he can apply to be a successful Black Stars coach.
Augustine Arhinful in an interview on Joy Fm disclosed that C.K. Akunnor's name will go down in the history books if he manages to win the AFCON tournament.
"I only hope it can work well. CK has played professional football before and knows what to do to succeed. I told him before that national team football is a different animal. You look at the different egos and study them. You have to manage the different characters well. If CK brings the cup, he will be named in history," he said.
He added that C.K. Akunnor and the rest of the team will have to work very hard in order to win the AFCON.
"If we are destined to win the AFCON, we will win it. I believe that it will happen but we need to work at it too," he disclosed.
C.K. Akunnor was appointed the Black Stars coach in January 2020 after Kwasi Appiah's contract ended.
As part of his Key Performance Index (KPIs) the former Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko coach was tasked to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and also qualify the team to the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that former coach of the Black Stars, James Kwasi Appiah, has opened up about coaching the Black Stars saying that he has no regrets what so ever about coaching the senior national team, the Black Stars.
According to Kwasi Appiah, he did the best that he could for the Black Stars which yielded results.
In an interview on Light FM and monitored by YEN.com.gh, the former Black Stars captain said he is happy that he has left a legacy that will serve as a precedent for other coaches who will take up the job someday.
