Ex-Black Stars defender, John Paintsil has urged fans to allow room for Coach Charles Akonnor to operate.


The former Ghana captain named a 29-man squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa and São Tomé this month.


The 47-year-old received criticisms from a section Ghanaian football fans following the inclusion of Kwame Afriyie Poku of English 4th tier side, Colchester United.


John Paintsil however believes Akonnor knows his job and must be allowed to work devoid of interference.


“You [the fans] are not the coach.


“It is the coach who knows what will help his team and the nation.


“At the end of the day, when the criticisms come, they will be placed at his doorstep.


“So the coach has to take the right decisions that will help him build his CV.


“Every coach wants to build his CV.


“No coach wants to lose games.


“I think the supporters should have patience for the coaches.


“Most of the coaches who once handled Ghana came with their systems and nothing would change their mindset.


“So we must endeavor to learn the game of football.” John Paintsil said.


Kwame Afriyie Poku’s name has since been taken out of the Black Stars squad for the two qualifying games.


Ghana will travel to South Africa as guest of the Bafana Bafana on March 25 in the penultimate group C qualifiers.


They will then return home against São Tomé on March 29 for the final game.


The Black Stars need just a point to qualify for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Cameroon.


Ghana are joint on 9 points with South Africa at the top of group C with Sudan in 3rd on 6 points and São Tomé bottom with no points after four matches.
