Chairman of the Black Stars Management Committee, George Amoako, has dismissed assertions that he and Black Stars head coach, C.K. Akonnor will be unable to work together for the nation.
Amoako was in charge of Kotoko when Akonnor fell out with the team leading to the appointment of Kjetil Zachariassen in 2019.
At Monday’s GFA’s Meet the Press held in Accra, Amoako gave details what happened at Kotoko that caused Akonnor to exit and added that, he and Akonnor work have a fruitful relationship working with the Black Stars.
“I did not sack Akonnor from Kotoko. The team’s management decided to elevate him to the position of a technical director and his job description did not deviate from that of a coach.
Nevertheless, that was a different territory. We are now talking about the national team. What happened in the past does not affect our current relationship in terms of working for the national team.
Akonnor and I spoke on Sunday and he briefed me on all the things he was doing in Europe (where Akonnor is currently monitoring national team players). There is absolutely nothing wrong between Akonnor and me.”
Amoako’s work as the chairman of the Black Stars Management Committee will be complemented by Akwasi Agyemang who is the Vice Chairman while Jones Alhassan Abu, Sammy Kuffuor and Fred Pappoe will serve as members.
