CK Akonnor 093 650x433 - "You are not the coach"- John Paintsil To CK Akonnor's Critics

Akonnor has been under severe backlash after naming his final squad 29-man squad for AFCON 2021 qualifiers agaisnt South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe.

Many believe some names should not have been on the list. For instance, Kwame Poku Afiyie who plays in England forth tier division for Colchester FC.

“You [the fans] are not the coach. It is the coach who knows what will help his team and the nation. At the end of the day, when the criticisms come, they will be placed at his doorstep. So the coach has to take the right decisions that will help him build his CV. Every coach wants to build his CV.

“No coach wants to lose games. I think the supporters should have patience for the coaches. Most of the coaches who once handled Ghana came with their systems and nothing would change their mindset.

“So we must endeavour to learn the game of football.” John Paintsil said.

Ghana needs at least a draw in the two remaining fixtures to qualify for the African International showpiece this year.
