Former football governing body leader angry over hasty naming of CK Akonor’s successor
Former Ghana Football Association president Niaho Niaho Tamakolo believes three days are not enough for the current administration to find a suitable coach for the national team.
West Africa are looking for a new coach following the sacking of CK Aconor on Monday for poor performance.
In a post on its official website, the FA planned to announce the replacement within 72 hours.
“The FA itself is confused, very confused,” Niaho Tamaklo said, as reported. City Sports.
“It took them three days to find a new coach. It doesn’t matter to me.
Either they already have a coach in mind, or they can never give us a good coach in that time. Remember my words. “
A three-member committee comprising GFA Vice President Mark Addo, Upper East Regional Football Association chairman Alhaji Salifo Zaida and Executive Council member Randy Abby has been tasked with finding a new Ghanaian boss.
Aquino’s sack came after a 1-0 defeat to South Africa in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, which put the Black Stars already third in the table in Group G.
The team began their campaign three days ago with a 1-0 home victory over Ethiopia.
The former Wolfsburg campaigner was appointed coach of Ghana in January last year, replacing James Kosi Opiah.
Taking over the position, the 47-year-old was tasked with qualifying for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations final and winning the title.
Once again, he was ordered to help the Black Stars get a ticket to the World Cup after the team’s failed attempt in 2018.
However, after winning 40% of the matches, losing 40% and drawing 20%, his government had to step down.
Ghana have less than a month to prepare for their next international assignment against Zimbabwe in next month’s World Cup qualifiers.
For Afkan in Cameroon next year, four-time champions Morocco are drawn against Gabon and Comoros.
