Black Stars head coach, CK Akonnor, says ending Ghana’s wait for an AFCON trophy is not his main focus.
Since winning the coveted continental title four times between 1963 -1982, Ghana has not had a lot of luck despite reaching the final three times in the 1992, 2010 and 2015.
Akonnor was brought in to replace Kwesi Appiah after Ghana’s disappointing performance in the 2019 edition of the tournament.
Following his appointment, expectations remain the same, with many Ghanaian football lovers hoping that the former national team captain will lead the country to her first AFCON title in over 30 years.
However, in an interview on Accra based radio station Starr Fm, Akonnor said improving the quality of the team is of more importance.
“I don’t want that to be my main focus,” he said .
“My focus is to try as much as I can to improve the team, once the team improves, we will get there.
“Don’t forget we have been to the finals a couple of times, it means that we are nor far from it.
“I definitely know what it takes to change certain things but I don’t want to be talking about winning the AFCON.
“It’s a way of putting pressure on myself but of course, I would want to achieve that success,” he concluded.
