Before the termination of Akonnor’s contract, he was owed about $425,000, but a cheque of $50,000, representing two months of his arrears was signed to be delivered before the national team’s trip to South Africa for the second game of the World Cup qualifying series.

Akonnor was appointed Ghana coach in January 2020 to succeed Kwasi Appiah and led the Black Stars for 10 matches.

He guided the Black Stars for ten matches wining four and drawing four and losing two matches.
