Akonnor gets new assistant coach


The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced a second assistant coach for the senior national team, Black Stars.

Patrick Greveraars, a Dutch UEFA A-License holder, has been brought in upon the request of head coach Charles Akonnor.

David Duncan remains part of the technical team, but will now be referred to as first assistant coach.

According to a statement by the GFA, Greveraars has over 25 years of worldwide top football experience.

“Greveraars is one of two coaches who were recommended by Akonnor in his quest to strengthen the technical team ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and next year’s Afcon in Cameroon.”

“He is expected to bring his experience, worldwide contacts and football methodology on board if he signs the deal.”

“Greveraars is currently in Ghana to assist the team with the upcoming International friendly matches and also to finalize talks ahead of his appointment,” the GFA wrote.

He is expected to team up with Akonnor and Duncan in Cape Coast where the team is camping for the games against Morocco and Ivory Coast.

The Black Stars will play Morocco on Tuesday, June 8 and Ivory Coast in Cape Coast on Saturday, June 12, 2021.

The 45-year old previously worked with PSV Eindhoven, FC Porto, Vitesse Arnhem, Feyenoord Rotterdam, Anorthosis Famagusta and Al Shabab Dubai.
