Black Stars Head Coach C.K Akonnor has opened up on his relationship with assistants and backroom staff of the senior national team.

The former Hearts and Kotoko trainer was handed the national team job in January after a short spell as assistant to former boss Kwesi Appiah.

He chose experienced gaffer David Duncan as his assistant coach.

After overseeing his first two games in charge, Akonnor has shed the light on his relationship with his backroom staff so far.

“We didn’t know each other well until we assembled here and not only this has helped us playing but it also helped us knowing each other, what I want, what I don’t, what they want and what they don’t want. And we always have a review, even this morning, we had a review of yesterday’s match and we disagree and agree but the ultimate aim is for us to be successful at the end of the day and that is what we are working towards” he told

”We will continue to improve. Not only did the players improve but we also improved in terms of preparation towards a match and I think after the first loss , we reviewed it, we spoke a lot about things we didn’t do right and in the second game, we improved in that sense and I think it helped all of us and we are happy. We want to continue to improve in that area, we want to discuss issues when one is not happy, it needs to be discussed. Like I said, we will disagree and agree but at the end of the day we are working towards a goal and that is what is important”
