Akunnor gets Wise coaching job

Ghanaian Premier League side Sekondi Hasaacas have handed the club's technical duties to ex-internationals C.K Akunnor and Nii Odartey Lamptey for the next two seasons.

Former Black Stars captain, Akunnor, who hung up his boots last year, takes over as head coach and will be assisted by Odartey Lamptey.

The 34-year-old Akunnor also captained German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg for the 2001/2002 season.

The inexperienced duo are aware of the task ahead and were quick themselves to question their credentials.

"I know there're a lot of questions you(the press) would like to ask, i know. I can see your faces, you are ready but i will plead with you to spare us of your questions today," Akunnor said at the press conference.

"I have been true the hands of a lot of coaches- I have learnt a lot and I'm think it's time I come back to my country I grew up and give back to the young generation.

"The fact that I have played football doesn't mean I can be a good coach so it's a challenge and it's very important that I go through this," he added.

"I know the task I have taken on - I know what I have to do.It's not going to be easy but we have to pass this litmus test.

Akunnor joins Ex-Black Stars team mate Mohammed Gargo who is an assistant coach AshantiGold Football Club.
