Sports Ministry Not In Hurry To Finalize CK Akonnor's Contract
An aide to the Youth and Sports Minister, Kofi Asare Brako has reiterated that the Sports Ministry is not in a hurry to complete the contractual agreement with CK Akonnor.
Akonnor, 45, was confirmed as the coach for the senior national team after the Ghana Football Association (GFA) failed to renew the contract of Kwesi Appiah in December.
Multiple reports have emerged that the former Asante Kotoko, Dreams FC and Ashgold gaffer is yet to wrap up a contractual agreement with the country's football governing body after reports emerged that he has signed a two-year deal.
However, Mr Brako claims the lack of football activities has delayed finalizing the contract.
“We are not playing active football and we don’t know when Covid 19 will go so that’s the reason why we are holding on now.
“The coach cannot even work here or travel to work all because of this Coronavirus pandemic so tie him and the government will go ahead to pay him 25,000 dollars every month when he is virtually doing nothing it does not make financial sense,” Asare Brako told Starr FM Sports.
Akonnor is assisted by David Duncan.
