President of the Ghana Football Association Kurt Edwin-Simeon Okraku is highly optimistic C.K. Akonnor will end Ghana’s AFCON winless run in the 2022 AFCON to be played in Cameroon.
Kurt is convincved the AFCON winless run will end in Cameroon next year with Akonnr as head coach of the Black Stars.
Ghana, after winning the AFCON on four occasions: 1963,1965, 1978 and 1982, have been chasing their fifth glory for 40 years and still counting.
The Black Stars have been preparing for the upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers and Nations Cup next year with friendlies against Morocco and Ivory Coast.
The team lost to the Atlas Lions on Tuesday in Rabat despite showing positive signs of improvement and the FA President is convinced Akonnor can win AFCON 2022.
“I believe in CK Akonnor and his technical team. I believe they have what it takes to take us to the promise land,” he said on TV3’s WarmUp Plus show.
The FA Boss has also been full of praise for the leadership of the team, captain Andre Ayew and his deputies.
“I’m very happy with the leadership of the Black Stars. Dede Ayew and Thomas Partey have been good so far,” said the FA President.
Ghana will host Ivory Coast on Saturday at the Cape Coast Stadium.
