Charles Kwablan Akonnor spent a year and ten month as coach of the Black Stars, leading the team in eleven matches. He won four, lost five and drew two of those games.
The defeat against South Africa in the World Cup qualifiers was the dagger to his managerial career with the national team, as the GFA showed him the exit door.
Akonnor has coached both Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko domestically, and the Black Stars job was the biggest of his career as manager.
The Ghana Football Association's Executive Council has charged vice president Mark Addo, Dr. Randy Abbey and Salifu Zida to find a new coach before Thursday.
Ghana will return to international football next month, when the Black Stars face Zimbabwe in a double header in the qualifiers to Qatar 2022.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that, Serbian trainer, Milovan Rajevac, is set to replace sacked Charles Kwablan Akonnor as the new Black Stars coach in the coming days.
Rajevac, who coached the Black Stars between 2008 to 2010, has reportedly agreed to return to the African giants, eleven years after leaving the country.
According to Ghanaian news portal, myjoyonline.com, Milovan Rajevac will replace C.K Akonnor after negotiations with the Ghana Football Association.
