Former Black Stars player Sam Johnson has blamed interference for the sacking of Black Stars coach C.K Akonnor.
Akonnor was relieved of his duties together with his two assistant coaches on Monday 13th September after a dismal run of form in the two opening games of the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
Ghana won 1-0 against Ethiopia in a game which was uninspiring and had to take a gift of a goal to give Ghana all three points but wee found out as they lost 1-0 to South Africa in Johannesburg.
The former Hearts player has blamed the GFA for CK Akonnor failure as they disrespected him by meddling in the affairs of the Black Stars with player imposition.
“I think interference is one of the reasons things didn’t go well for CK. He was not himself over there” – Sam Johnson told Takoradi-based Empire FM.
“When you give me a job and I am not free to do the job, but when the problems comes, I’m the one to take the blame; that thing is not right. This thing has been happening for a long time, especially with the local Coaches.” – Sam Johson continued.
“We were all hopeful when CK comes in, things will change. But things didn’t and I think that was the biggest problem for him” – Sam Johnson concluded while speaking to Takoradi-based Empire FM.
