Former Ghana and Hearts of Oak striker Prince Tagoe has backed C.K Akonnor for success in his role as the 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 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon and also qualify Ghana to the next edition of the FIFA World Cup.

“When I heard about the appointment of CK Akonnor, I was very happy,” Tagoe told Joy FM.

“I know him personally and I have been to his house several times. He is a disciplined man and playing in Germany is a plus.

“I don’t think he will be shy of any player because he has played to the highest level and for me, he is the best choice for us a football country.

“I will only urge Ghanaians to offer their support and I know CK Akonnor will succeed,” he added.
