Former Sports Minister, Nii Lante Vanderpuye, has called for the dissolution of the current Black Stars technical team.

The senior national team the Black Stars has come under several criticisms following the two 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifying games.

Ghana has suffered some poor results in recent months, including a 1-0 defeat to South Africa on Monday in Johannesburg at the FNB Stadium.

The poor results have been coupled with underwhelming performances which have put the future of Akonnor in question.

According to Nii Lante Vanderpuye, the problem of the Black Stars also includes the technical staff and not just Akonnor and would have sacked them all had he been GFA boss

“I hear Akonnor isn’t the only problem. People are pushing for their players to be in the team," he told Accra based Starr FM.

"In the middle of a WorldCup Qualifying series isn’t the ideal time to change a coach.

“But I’m radical. If I was the GFA Boss, I’d sack the entire technical team, not Akonnor alone,” he added.

Ghana will face Zimbabwe in a doubleheader on October 6 in Ghana, and on October 10 in Zimbabwe.

The Black Stars sit 3rd with three points following their win against Ethiopia in their opening game staged at the Cape Coast Stadium.
