CK Akonnor, a former captain of the Black Stars has opined that the Kwesi Nyantakyi era brought about tremendous improvement in the conditions at the senior national team camp compared to his time.
Nyantakyi was forced to resign as president of the Ghana Football Association in June last year following revelations from Number 12 investigative piece on corruption in the local game by journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Speaking to Starr Sports, Akonnor, who featured for the Ghana national team from 1991 to 2001 said:
“I think during my time, football was not really organized; but after us, the awareness came.
“When Nyantakyi took over, he brought the whole new idea of how to manage the team.”
“There was a massive change when he took over the game. If it wasn’t for the change he brought and his hard work, we couldn’t have been able to make it to the world Cup,” the 44-year-old added.
C.K Akonnor became a coach after hanging up his boots. He has handled clubs like Eleven Wise, Hearts of Oak, Dreams FC, his former club AshantiGold and is currently the head coach of Ghana’s Confederation Cup campaigners Asante Kotoko.
