Aide to the Sports Minister Kofi Asare Brako has revealed that government is not in a rush to finalize the contractual agreement with the newly appointed coach of the Black Stars CK Akonnor.

The former Asante Kotoko trainer succeeded James Kwasi Appiah and he is expected to end Ghana’s trophy drought at the 2021 AFCON in Cameroun.

The FA has fulfilled their part of the contractual agreement but the paymasters insist it will not be financially prudent to tie him down when he is not working due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

“We are not playing active football and we don’t know when COVID 19 will go so that’s the reason why we are holding on now. The coach cannot even work here or travel to work because of this Coronavirus pandemic so tying him down for the government to go ahead to pay him 25,000 dollars every month when he is virtually doing nothing it does not make financial sense,” Asare Brako told Starr FM Sports.
