The former international shared his thoughts on the situation of the Black Stars boss after his poor performance.
Former Ghana winger Yao Prico has disagreed with demands to fire Black Stars coach CK Aconor, who came under fire after a 1-0 defeat to South Africa in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers on Monday.
In his 10th game, the former Wolfsburg captain saw his side bow in a match-day fixture in front of Bafana, trying to beat Ethiopia 1-0 at home three days later.
It was the sixth time his team had failed to win a match, with three of his four victories as head coaches less than 120 in FIFA’s rankings against incoming teams.
“The dismissal is too soon, it’s just two games,” said Prico, who was featured in the 2000 Africa Cup of Nations. Happy game.
“He has already qualified us for Afkan and we have only played two matches so why do we need to press the panic button? No, we have to take it easy.
“I know how everyone is feeling. If you fire him now and bring in another coach and we don’t qualify, he’ll tell you he had too little time and you have to give him time.” If he doesn’t qualify, are you going to fire him too? Then we’ll fire him forever.
“Let’s support and benefit skepticism. We know he can do it, we have to believe it. Sometimes when the killing is too much, the person gets confused.
Monday’s match was Econor’s second defeat in his last four matches, in which his team has scored only one goal.
Following the recent losses, Ghana are already third in Group G, behind South Africa and second in Ethiopia.
“Ghanaians should support CK Akonnor because it’s never too late. The current players in the Black Stars are the best now,” said Mohammed Polo, the 1978 Afkan winner. OTEC FM.
“Let’s support it and see the way forward. Let’s help ourselves because foreign coaches just come and spend our money.
Econor will take Ghana into action next month when the Black Stars face Zimbabwe in a double-header in the World Cup qualifiers.
