Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko and Black Stars of Ghana head Coach Charles Akunnor in his recent interview has outlined the struggles he went through during his days as the Black Stars Coach.
Charles Akunnor who have also been the head Coach of Ghana Premier league club Ashanti Gold and Asante Kotoko says he enjoyed been a Kotoko coach than leading the Black Stars of Ghana.
“I enjoyed my coaching moments at Kotoko more than the Black Stars. My stint with Kotoko has been the highest point in my coaching career. But at Kotoko even though there was not a proper season because of the Anas Expose we had a solid preseason and that really helped us,” he told Kumasi-based Akoma FM as quoted by football Ghana.
“We went to Takoradi and Mampong, all this helped us coupled with the support from management. Let me say that the supporters were unbelievable during our African campaign. I got shocked when I saw a packed stadium during our first game, that made me love my job more and I felt at home. I had total support from the management and that helped us to qualify for the group stages where we also did well.
“But some major injuries occurred which greatly affected us in our campaign. I enjoyed every moment I had at Kotoko more than any job I have ever done as a coach. Black Stars at my time was struggling, the whole team was not stable, sometimes when making a call up you don’t even know how many players to call. At black Stars, it was a different story and one day I will tell it,” the former Hearts of Oak trainer added.
C.K Akunnor is currently without a club after his last stint with the Black Stars of Ghana.
