I trust CK Akonnor – GFA President

Ghana Football Association President Kurt Okraku has denied having any rift with head coach of the Black Stars, CK Akonnor.

The two were reportedly not in talking terms but that has been denied by the Football Association Capo; stating that he trusts the later.

“If I don’t believe in CK Akonnor, as the head trainer of our Black Stars, obviously, I will convince my Executive Committee to come along with me that he is not the right guy.

“Charles Akonnor is our coach, we have to support him to be successful, I trust him, just as any other person, we may differ into how things need to be done, but once he is there, it means I trust him, and I will support CK Akonnor to bring back the love the Ghanaian people, just like I have trusted Abdul Karim Zito and he brought back the love – he won the AFCON,” he said in an interview with footballmadeinghana.

Kurt Okraku stressed on the need for Ghanaians to support the man he said he knows more than everyone in the football circles.

“Charles will be successful as the head coach of Ghana but it behooves on all of us to help him to be successful, it behooves on all of us to honest in our assessment of what we are doing as a people and to ensure we press the right button at all times.

“Who knows CK Akonnor more than me? Who knows? Nobody, because I’m the person who’s worked with him throughout his career, so I know him – I know what he can do and what he can’t and he knows it, we will work together of achieving the target of envy, of not only making sure that our national team, the Black Stars is competitive but we touch the trophy that has been elusive to all of us,” he added.
