CK Akunnor Perturbed Over Asante Kotoko's Recent Poor Form

Charles Kwablan Akonnor, former Asante Kotoko head coach has expressed his concern about the club's recent poor output.

The Ghana Premier League giants were crashed out of the CAF Confederation Cup playoffs following a 2-1 aggregate defeat at the hands of Ivorian side FC San Pedro.

In a Twitter interaction with fans, the former Dreams FC and Ashgols trainer tweeted; “I feel bad, I thought we could have done enough but look at the situation now and we hope for the best.”

A reply to @adwoa_gyamfoa’s question on the club’s current form after he led them to the group stages of the competition.

The Procupine Warriors ashtonishingly parted ways with Akunnor after he guided them to the group stage of the Confederation Cup in the 2018/19 season.

Akonnor stepped down after Kotoko reassigned him to the technical director role and brought in Kjetil Zachariassen as head coach.

The former Ghana skipper also won the NC Special Cup tier 1 competition which qualified Kotoko to this season’s Caf Champions League.

Thus Kotoko’s African campaign began in the Caf Champions League where a first-round loss to Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia forced their demotion to the Confederation Cup.

Akonnor also replied to another fan’s question about him returning to the club, he tweeted “There is always a chance in the future for such.”

He is now the assistant coach of the senior national team, Black Stars.

His appointment is an interim one but he CK tweeted that he would consider a permanent contract if he is handed one.

CK Akonnor before his Black Stars appointment applied for Guinea national team job but lost out to Didier Six.
