I’m owed 7 months- Black Stars Coach


Black Stars coach, Charles Kwablan Akonnor, has said he has not been paid for seven months.

Akonnor was appointed coach of the Black Stars in January 2020 and led the team to qualify for the delayed 2021 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Akonnor was initially owed for 12-months but the Ministry of Youth and Sports is reported to have paid five months of the arrears and are yet to pay for the remaining seven months.

Akonnor, speaking to journalists in a media brief via zoom revealed that earlier reports that he had been paid were not accurate.

Yesterday and today, it has come up that I’ve been paid. That’s not the case. I think the FA has corrected that.” Akonnor was present at the Nations Cup draw in Yaoundé, on Tuesday, August 17 when Ghana were drawn to face Morocco, Gabon and Guinea.

The Black Stars will face their counterparts from Morocco, Gabon and Comoros after being drawn together in Group C.
