Coach CK Akonnor urged to ‘sit up’ after shocking loss to Sudan

George Amoakoh, Chairman of Black Stars Management Committee has called on coach CK Akonnor to sit up after Sudan’s loss.

George Amoakoh who in sharing his thought on the game said the technical team must up their expertise in matches to come.

“I hope that the technical team would sit up and correct all the errors; the errors that ensured that we could not score a goal [away to Sudan.

“All the game was centered in the midfield and our incursions upfront did not yield any dividend. They should ensure that they are able to penetrate defenses and score goals; that is the only way to win matches.

“We did not achieve what we sought to achieve; we thought we could either draw or win the game but it didn’t come off that way, and I think we need to learn a few lessons from that.

“We had a lot of problems with getting exactly what we wanted because of Covid-19 and other factors. You realized that there were a lot of late call-ups… but I believe that at the end of the day, what we had on the bench could have won us the game.

“It didn’t go the way we wanted; if it doesn’t go the way you want what does it mean? I am not a technical person to say the selection was bad.

“The only thing I can say is that how we played did not generate the needed goals to win the game, and for that matter, I would wish that the technical team do their best to ensure that subsequent games are won and won beautifully.”
