CK Akunnor insists he won't quit Hearts job

Under-fire Hearts coach CK Akunnor insists he won’t resign from the club despite growing reports over his future.

The 38-year-old has come under intense pressure to quit his post following the side’s poor start in the Ghana Premier League.

The capital-based suffered their third successive defeats in the top-flight after they lost 2-0 at Berekum Chelsea last weekend.

Critics have accused the former Ghana captain of failing to show leadership in clamping down on growing indiscipline in the team.

But Akunnor insists he would not stand down as head coach of the club and resolved to arrest their downward spiral.

“I am determined to stay even though there ae issues,” Akunnor told State-owned Graphic sports

“I’m unwilling to discuss them now only to focus and encourage the players to win.”

Hearts will take on Real Tamale United at home on Sunday.
