Black Stars Coach Committee Given 72 Hours To Find New Ghana Coach
A committee led by GFA vice president Mark Addo has been formed and tasked to find a new coach for the senior national team, the Black Stars, in the next 72 hours.
GFA exco member, Randy Abbey and Northern Regional FA Chairman, Alhaji Salifu Zita, are part of the three member Committee.
Coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor was sacked by the FA on Monday after an abysmal start to the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
The Black Stars won the opening game against Ethiopia despite a lackluster performance, before a defeat in South Africa prompted the FA on deciding over the former Ghana captain’s future.
“The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association has taken a decision to terminate 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,” wrote the FA.
“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.”
