Sacking Akonnor will be a wrong decision - Chibsah

Former Asante Kotoko midfielder, Yusif Alhassan Chibsah has implored the management of the club against terminating the contract of head coach CK Akonnor.

Reports have emerged that the Porcupine Warriors are yet to decide on the future of the former Dreams FC gaffer after failing to book a quarterfinals place in the CAF Confederations Cup in the 2018/19 campaign.

However, some fans and persons close to the powers that be have started calling for the trainer’s head after they failed to progress to the last eight.

But the former King Faisal midfield kingpin insists the current management will be making a great mistake if they sack the former Ghana international.

“If you employ a coach, you need to set a target and goals for him and I know Kotoko has a target for CK Akonnor.

“Looking at the performance of Kotoko taking into consideration where they’re coming from where there is no football in the country and he having just some few months to prepare the team for the competition, I would say that CK did a great job with the team.

“There should be no reason for anyone to suggest that CK should be sacked. It will be a wrong decision,” he told Starr Sports.

Akonnor was appointed in October last year on a three-year deal.

Asante Kotoko returned home from their trip to Zambia on Tuesday with Akonnor tasked to present a comprehensive report on the club’s Africa campaign.
