"CK Akonnor is a no nonsense coach, he will not be influenced by even the sports minister on player call ups," he told FOX FM.
"What CK Akonnor has done in football non of those playing for the Black Stars has done so, he will not listen to those who will ask him to use their players, so for the Black Stars coaching job he can do it easily," he added.

He might also be in charge of the team for AFCON 2021.
