Mubarak Wakaso has expressed his confidence in his former Black Stars coach CK Akonnor to succeed in his next coaching role.
CK Akonnor was sacked on Monday evening relieved of his post following a run of poor performance after the Black Stars’ last two games in the Group G World Cup qualifying matches against Ethiopia and South Africa.
Ghana won 1-0 against Ethiopia and lost by the same margin to South Africa.
Mubarak Wakaso who scored the only goal in the opening game of the qualifiers against Ethiopia has now reacted to the sacking of the coach.
In a Twitter post, Mubarak Wakaso thanked the coach for inspiring his football career and also expressed his confidence in the former Asante Kotoko coach succeeding in subsequent roles.
“When I was a little boy in Tamale I watched you play football.
“Later, I became a ball boy/player for Gold Fields where you played. You became my coach at the Black Stars. Thank you for everything and best of luck in your next job. I know you will succeed CK Akonnor,” he wrote.
Akonnor, who was appointed in January 2020, took charge of 10 games for the Black Stars winning just four games.
In his 20 month stay, he managed to qualify the Black Stars to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations which will take place in Cameroon next year.
