Kwesi Appiah recommends CK Akonnor as his deputy

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has proposed former Asante Kotoko trainer Charles Akonnor as his new deputy, according to multiple sources.

Appiah, who supervised a washed-out 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, has written to the Football Association to have his deputy Ibrahim Tanko replaced.

Appiah is reported to have told the Ghana FA he can no longer work with ex-Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah — who served as Team Manager.

Akonnor was recently shortlisted for the Guinean national team job but could not make the final cut as former Togo and Mauritius coach Didier Six was preferred ahead of the former Ghana international.
