New head coach of the Black Stars, Charles Akonnor has reiterated his readiness to manage the Ghanaian national football team after having taken over from Kwesi Appiah.

The 45-year-old in his first interview with the GFA media acknowledged the pressure in coaching the senior national team but insisted he’s up to the task.

“I’ve worked under a lot of pressure at very strong local teams and it’s always gone well. Once you are dedicated and passionate, it can be done”

“I’ve coached very demanding teams so I should be ready for what’s to come.

The former Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko coach is quoted by

“I have to be clever with the decisions I make. I know a lot of people would talk. I am a good listener but I would make strong decisions too.”

“I know that there are situations when some players have been looked down on. It would change. Beyond the skill and talent, they must show commitment”, He added.

Charles Akonnor who took over the Black Stars realms earlier this month has been tasked to end Ghana’s long-wait for AFCON glory, as well as qualify the West African country to the 2022 World Cup.
