Ghana Football Association President, Kurt Okraku has practically asked Ghanaians to have hope in the head coach of the Black Stars, Charles Akonnor as he believes the coach will succeed with the senior national team.

Following the exit of Kwasi Appiah on December 31, the FA named Akonnor as the head coach of the national team.

The experience level of the former Asante Kotoko and Dreams FC boss has been questioned by many football fans in the country.

Akonnor has never coached a team at the national level but Kurt Okraku is optimistic that he can lead the Black Stars to the promise land.

“I am very positive that CK will succeed with the national team. He has played in Germany for Wolfsburg and also captaining the Black Stars as well. He was a big player. By way of coaching, he has have stint with Hearts of Oak, Kotoko, Dreams FC and Ashantigold so I think he has experience in coaching”

“He is a true son of the land and it is about time we all rally behind him with prayers and whatever support. Once Ghanaians and the Ghana FA support him, I have no doubt that David Duncan will take the Black Stars to a different level. I’m very positive about the future” he told Topical Radio in Germany.
