Former stop-gap AshantiGold coach Yakubu Mambo has backed Charles Kwablah Akonnor to succeed in his new role as head coach of the Black Stars.
Akonnor was handed the national team job in January after a short spell as assistant to former boss Kwesi Appiah.
He has been tasked to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon and also qualify Ghana to the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
However Mambo insists Akonnor is the right man to change the fortunes of the four-time African Champions.
“C.K can do the blackstars job easily.I have worked with him and I know his ability go beyond coaching the national team.He will do the job easily.The blackstar coaching job is easier than coaching AshantiGold. C.K is the right man for the job” he said in an interview with Yes FM, Cape Coast.
