Black Stars striker Asamoah Gyan has called on Ghanaians to avoid interfering in coach Charles Akonnor’s role as head coach of the senior national team.
The All-time Ghana top scorer in an interview with Adom FM shared huge admiration of the former Asante Kotoko coach insisting that he can not be dictated to.
“CK is a man of his word. I have had a meeting with him and people who are close to him can testify that no one can dictate to him”
“He will do what favours him as a coach in the sense that when things do not go on well, he takes the blame, ” Gyan told Adom FM.
He, however, maintained that the former Ghana international can not be dictated to.
“We Ghanaians should allow the coach to do his work. He should take control of the national team so that when things go wrong, he can be blamed.
“If you [force] players on him and he doesn’t perform, whom are you going to blame? But I think CK has played in Germany and with his mentality, no one can dictate to him.
“I’m reliably informed that he quit most of the clubs [he coached] because he didn’t want anyone to dictate for him.” He added.
Charles Akonnor made 41 appearances for the Black Stars, scoring 12 goals in the process.
He was appointed head coach of Black Stars in January this year, replacing Kwesi Appiah following the expiration of his contract in the Ghana Football Association.
