Kwasi Appiah Gets Mention In C. K. Akonnor’s First Post-Ghana Sack Reaction

The former Wolfsburg skipper has spoken for the first time after being shown the exit door by the Ghana Football Association.

Former Ghana head coach CK Akonnor has given special thanks to predecessor James Kwasi Appiah after getting the sack on Monday.

Akonnor’s reign as Black Stars boss came to an end after 21 months following a series of poor results, including a 1-0 loss to South Africa in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers last week.

He was handed the Ghana job in January last year, replacing Appiah who guided the team to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.

“I’m grateful to HE President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Sports Ministry, my former boss Kwasi 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,” Akonnor posted on his official Twitter account on Tuesday.
