Akonnor betrayed Kwesi Appiah after accepting Black Stars job- Bofo chief Boateng Gyan

The Chief Executive Officer of Bofoakwa Tano, Yaw Boateng Gyan, says Charles Kwabla Akonnor should not have accepted to coach the Black Stars after Kwesi Appiah was sacked.

Coach Kwesi Appiah appointed Charles Kwabla Akonnor as his deputy coach to understudy the national team.

Kwesi Appiah was later sacked and the job handed over to Charles Kwabla Akonnor in January 2020.

According to the former Black Stars management committee member, Akonnor accepting the role as head coach of the Black Stars was a betrayal to Kwesi Appiah.

“If they sacked Kwesi Appiah, then it wasn’t appropriate to appoint CK Akonnor as his assistant”, he told Odiasempa Kwame Oware on Wamputu Sports on Happy 98.9FM.

“CK Akonnor should have also rejected the offer when he was asked to take over the job from his boss Kwesi Appiah. It was a stab in the back.

“If the GFA claims the head coach (Kwesi Appiah) was not good then his deputy is also not competent for the job”.
The former National Organizer of the NDC also called for CK Akonnor’s sacking after Ghana’s defeat to South Africa in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

“In my view we should be honest with ourselves and sack CK Akonnor. We have a lot of talents here in the country but the problem as to do with coaching and the way we select players to the Black Stars”
