Former Black Stars head coach C.K Akonnor may have lost his job after his sacking on Monday evening but his bank balance will soon be bulging with compensation.

Akonnor was relieved of his duties together with his two assistant coaches on Monday 13th September after a dismal run of form in the two opening games of the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Ghana won 1-0 against Ethiopia in a game which was uninspiring and had to take a gift of a goal to give Ghana all three points but wee found out as they lost 1-0 to South Africa in Johannesburg.

The former Ghana captain signed a two-year contract with the Ghana Football Association in January 2020 with a monthly salary of $25,000.

With barely four months to the end of his contract, the former Kotoko, AshGold trainer is due some compensation which will amount to $100,000.

The Sports Minister, Mustapha Ussif confirmed in August that the former Asante Kotoko trainer’s salary was in arrears of seven months making it $175,000 with the four months left on his deal making it $275,000.
