John Paintsil disagrees with Ghana FA for sacking C.K Akonnor

The former Ghanaian international has expressed his thoughts on the sacking of C.K Akonnor as the head coach of the Black Stars

The former Ghanaian international believes the sacking of C.K Akonnor as the head coach of the Black Stars is a wrong decision taken by the Football Association.

C.K Akonnor was kicked out of his position on Monday following his 1-0 loss to South Africa in the 2022 World Cup qualifies.

“It’s not a nice feeling, when it happens to a coach, it is like it has happened to all of us,” Paintsil told Citi FM.

“However, this is the nature of a coaches’ job, sometimes you get a good start, other times you get a bad start.

“I would say that it is rather unfortunate, this is not the right time at all, he should have been given time to work on the team.

“When you look at his statistics and what he has done, you can tell that he came at the wrong time, and he didn’t get the chance to camp the players enough before most of the games. For me, it is very disappointing.”

Former Ghana and Udinese star Mohammed Gargo has suggested a reason for Akonnor’s poor performance was interference in his job.

“I don’t know if he was being controlled or manipulated. I cannot say if he was doing things on his own, but I knew he was being influenced,” said the ex-midfielder.
