Ex-Ghana star Anthony Yeboah has encouraged Ghanaians to massively support Charles Kwablan Akonnor to succeed as Black Stars coach.

Yeboah believes without the support of all Ghanaians, Charles Akonnor can't achieve the targets set for him.

The former Black Stars captain has been tasked to win Africa Cup of Nations trophy which has eluded Ghana since 1982.

“I always call C.K Slim Macho. He is a tough person but it will not be about his pedigree," Yeboah said on GTV.

"C.K needs support, he can’t do it alone. Everyone has to support him and give him a chance. Without that, C.K can’t do it alone because, without support, he can’t do anything.”

Akonnor was appointed in January following the departure of coach James Kwasi Appiah.
