The ex-Ghana international has been appointed as Black Stars assistant coach.

Former Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak coach Charles Kobina Akonnor was tipped to be named the new assistant coach of senior national team of Ghana after his manager won the GFA presidency.

The 45-year-old is joining the technical team of the Black Stars as replacement for Coach Ibrahim Tanko with experience and expectations.

The move for Akonnor’s appointment is to allow Coach Tanko focus on his role as head coach of the Black Meteors as he prepares the team for the 2019 Africa U23 Cup of Nations in Egypt next month.

Ghana will open their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers campaign with South Africa on November 14th.

Three days later, the Black Stars will fly out to face Sao Tome and Principe in their second Group C fixture.

Coach Akonnor was one of the coaches shortlisted for the Guinea national team job but he missed out after an interview.

He has been unattached after his contact with Ghana Premier League side was abrogated.

Akonnor Coach Akonnor has vast experience in coaching with his stint at top Ghana Premier League clubs namely Hearts of Oak, Dreams FC, Ashanti Gold SC, Asante Kotoko and relegated club Sekondi Eleven Wise.

We wish him all the BEST.
