Charles Akonnor could lose his post on Friday, reports the Ghanasoccernet.com site. Very disputed, the selection of the Black Stars of Ghana is in the sights of the Ghanaian Football Association (GFA) which would like to separate from the technician.
Will Charles Akonnor manage to keep his post while a popular discontent against the technician is mounting more and more among the supporters of the Black Stars? Disappointed by Ghana’s performance in the first two days of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, they are calling with much more firmness for the dismissal of the Black Stars coach. And, according to the site Ghanasoccernet.com, the former Ghanaian international is due to be sacked this Friday, September 10, 2021 by the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
While his team is ranked 2nd (3pts) behind South Africa in these 2022 World qualifiers in Qatar, Charles Akonnor seems to be paying the price for the poor performance of his training recently. Winners of Ethiopia on the 1st day in Group G, the Black Stars could not follow up against South Africa. Powerless, harmless, they indeed fell against Bafana Bafana during their second outing. And much more than the defeat, it is the content of the game proposed by the men of Charles Akonnor which upsets the Ghanaian supporters.
The latter are now considering the qualification of their nation for the next big meeting of world football in Qatar is threatened with Charles Akonnor at the head of the team. And that we must now dismiss the former player from Wolsburg in Germany from the technical staff of the Black Stars.
In addition, a well-known name in African football, that of the former Morocco coach, Hervé Renard, has been mentioned since last Tuesday as a probable successor to Charles Akonnor if he were to leave.
As a reminder, Charles Akonnor took the reins of the Ghanaian selection in January 2020.
