Ghanaian midfielder Mubarak Wakso has thanked sacked Black Satsr coach CK Akonnor and wished him well in his future endeavours.
In a Twitter post, the 31-year-old was full of praise for CK Akonnor and believes he will succeed in whatever he does as far as his career as a coach is concerned.
He shared the post with accompanying training photos at the camp of the Black Stars.
“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 @akonnor_ck”
According to trusted sources, former Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac is leading the race to become the next Black Stars coach.
The 67-year-old Serbian previously led the Ghana national team to the CHAN final in 2000, the AFCON final in 2010, and the FIFA World Cup quarterfinals in 2010.
The Ghana Football Association is racing against the clock to find a new coach for Ghana after deciding to relieve CK Akonnor of his duties on Monday following a poor start to the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign in which he won one and lost one of the first two games.
On Tuesday, the government gave approval for the GFA to appoint a foreign coach, after initially insisting that the next Black Stars coach be a Ghanaian.
