Immediate-past Black Stars coach, James Akwesi Appiah has urged his successor, CK Akonnor to be firm in his decision making.

“All I want to tell Akonnor is that he should be very firm in each decision that he takes,” Appiah said.

“He needs to give the players 100 percent respect so that they can also respect him.

“I can’t talk about what he should do because every coach has his own philosophy.”

Akonnor has been named as the head coach of Ghana’s senior national football team on a two-year deal, following Kwesi Appiah’s exit in December 2019.

The former Kotoko and Hearts of Oak trainer will be assisted by David Duncan.

Akonnor’s major assignment comes in March in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
