Ex-Black Stars defender, Sammy Osei Kuffour has urged Ghanaians to be patient with the new head coach of the senior national team, CK Akonnor.

The former defender, who played together with CK Akonnor in the national team, explained that the team will need to be reorganised with a clear philosophy and plan that will guide future Black Stars teams.

Even though he recognised the desire of the country to win the African Cup of Nations, after last winning it in 1982, he advocated that no pressure should be mounted on the Black Stars coach in that regard.

Despite the current crop of players the country boasts of, Osei Kufuor noted, “I will just say this and I know it is going to hurt some people but we should not even think of winning the African Cup of Nations but we should ourselves 6 years. What is our philosophy, what is our plan, what is our concept? That should be our target.”

C.K Akonnor reveals why he selected David Duncan as his assistant

“It is not like we have Asamoah Gyan, Dede Ayew so, by all means, we have to go an win the AFCON. We shouldn’t put pressure on CK. We should allow him to deal with the momentum of the team.”

He advised the coach and the management of the national team to focus on recruiting and training talents that will spur the team to glory admitting that the quality level may have dropped slightly over time.

“The quality that we had in those days from 82, 78, and all the way to now is not still the same. There is a little bit of difference,” he said.

CK Akonnor was appointed by the current Ghana Football Association led by Kurt Okraku.

His appointment was confirmed in January this year with David Duncan as Assistant coach.

CK Akonnor is a former captain of the senior national team, former Hearts of Oak and Kotoko coach and former Assistant coach to Kwesi Appiah, former Black Stars coach.
