GPL: AshGold part ways with Coach Akonnor

Ghana Premier League leaders AshantiGold have terminated their relationship with head coach C.K Akonnor.

No official reason has been given on whether the 44-year-old quit or has been let go, but given that the club is first to comment, many will speculate on the latter.

CEO Frederick Acheampong said: “It’s true that Ashgold has parted ways with head CK Akonnor.”

“We appreciate all his good works for the club but sometimes things like these happen.”

“The reasons behind his exit will be made known to the public very soon.”

“Yakubu Mambo will take over first team duties now until we appoint a substantive coach,” he told Happy FM.

CK Akonnor was reported to have been queried by the club last week for failing to lead the team’s resumption of training. He was at the time allegedly involved in TV punditry on the ongoing Fifa World Cup in Russia.
