Former Blackstars headcoach CK Akunnor has expressed his gratitude to Ghanaians for giving him a chance to handle the senior national team.
Coach CK Akunnor and his two assistants were sacked in later hours of Monday upon receipt of technical reports from the Head Coach of the Senior National Team and the Black Stars Management Committee following Ghana’s Group G World Cup qualifying matches against Ethiopia and South Africa.
The ex-captain was appointed after his predecessor Kwesi Appiah parted ways with Ghana Football Association (GFA) following the expiration of his national team contract.
CK Akunnor was given the mandate to complete the qualification round of the national team to AFCON 2022 which was started by Kwesi Appiah and fully be the next Black coach to take Blackstars to 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
But CK Akunnor’s performances have been nothing to write home about giving poor account of himself since taking charge a year ago with his assistant David Duncan.
Akonnor took charge of 10 matches as head coach of the Black Stars. He lost four, won four and drew two of those matches.
Of those 10 games, six were competitive fixtures; four AFCON 2021 qualifying matches and two World Cup qualifiers.
CK wrote on his official Twitter handle thanking the president, Sports Miniustry and the Ghana FA
‘I’m grateful to H.E President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Sports Ministry, my former boss Kwesi Appiah, the leadership of the GFA, colleagues I worked with, players and Ghanaians for the opportunity to serve.
‘Wishing the team all the best. Thank you Ghana’’
It is unclear where CK Akunnor will be heading to in his next endeavor but Scoopernews will keep you posted on every details regarding his next move.
