Ghanaian coach, Augustine Arhinful has said it will be bad for Black Stars head coach CK Akonnor to be sacked now when there is little time to prepare for the next round of fixtures in the qualifiers to the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
It comes as a defense for the underfire Ghana coach who was in the dugout of the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg last Monday when South Africa’s Bafana Bafana defeated the Black Stars 1-0.
After that game, there have been heightened calls for the gaffer to be shown the exit door with Ghanaians on social media arguing that he has not shown he has the quality to lead Ghana to the World Cup.
Waving into the calls in an interview with Kumasi-based Nhyira FM, Augustine Arhin has stressed that coach CK Akonnor should not be sacked.
“This is not the best time to sack CK Akonnor. We can talk to him to improve on his performance. We have a short period to the next round of matches,” the ex-Ghana attacker shared.
He continued, “You cannot build a national team with a two-year contract. Building a national team takes about 5 years and more.”
