CK Akonnor didn’t work with free hands- Titus Glover
Former Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema East Titus Glover has questioned the moral right of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to sack CK Akonnor after constant interference in his work as the Black Stars Coach.
The GFA Executive Committee after meeting on Monday made a decision to terminate the contract of CK Akonnor and his two assistants after receipt of reports from the technical team and the management committee.
There have been several reactions to the news, with some Ghanaians commending the GFA for taking the right decision, while others feels the timing is wrong.
The former MP who earlier dared GFA not to sack CK Akonnor because they don’t pay him, has also reacted to the news in an angry manner, wondering why someone who hands has been tied from day one can effectively deliver.
He spoke in an interview with Saddick Adams on Angel Floodlight sports, “I wasn’t surprised CK has been sacked, I got the hints of it and dared them not to. You don’t employ a coach and constantly interfere in his work and except him to perform” he says.
He also condemned cowards sports Journalists in Ghana who knows about the GFA’s interference in the CK works but has kept mute on it.
Meanwhile, the Executive Committee has tasks some individuals to look for CK’s replacement within 72hours.
