Ex-Black Stars captain, Charles Kwablah Akonnor has noted that he believes he is ready to take up the role as head coach for any of the national teams after managing some of the top clubs in the country.

The gaffer recently parted ways with Ghana Premier League giants Kumasi Asante Kotoko after qualifying them for this year’s edition of the CAF Champions League competition.

Before that, he guided them to reach group stages of the last edition of the CAF Confederations Cup and also lifted the tier 1 trophy of the GFA Normalization Committee Special Competition with the Porcupine Warriors.

Now looking ahead to the new challenge in his coaching career, CK Akonnor has disclosed in a recent interview that he believes he is ready to handle any of the national teams in the country.

According to him, if that opportunity does not come around anytime soon, he will be open to going abroad to get more ideas as far as the craft is concerned.

“I have coached a lot of teams in this country and I think it's either I get a chance to take on one of the national teams or better still I may go to abroad and expand myself as a coach so as to excel at the top level”, Coach CK Akonnor said.

Besides Kotoko, he has also handled clubs such as Accra Hearts of Oak, Obuasi Ashanti Gold, and Dreams FC.

Meanwhile, CK Akonor is reportedly close to taking up the managerial role at Rwandan club Rayon Sports F.C.
