Newly appointed head coach for the Black Stars of Ghana, CK Akunnor has called for support from all stakeholders to help him succeed in the position.

The former Ghanaian international ventured into coaching after hanging his boots and has managed to make quite an expression after a short time. The gaffer has coached the likes of Asante Kotoko, Hearts of Oak, as well as Ashanti Gold, all in the Ghana Premier League at the early stages of his managerial career.

In the last couple of weeks, he was appointed as the new head coach for the country’s senior national team to replace Coach James Kwesi Appiah whose contract run out at the end of 2019.

In his first interview after assuming that position, CK Akunnor has called for the support of all to ensure he succeeds.

“I thank you all for the confidence you have posed in me to head this position. As a formal player myself, I understand the demands that come with the job and I ask for your support as I commence this journey”, the gaffer shared.

He added, “The GFA has given us directives and objectives and I believe with hard work and diligence we will succeed. Let’s all come together, ignite the passion and love for the game, and let’s bring back the love for the Stars”.
