New head coach of the Black Stars, C.K. Akonnor, says only committed players will be invited to the senior national team, the Black Stars.

The former Ghana and Wolfsburg captain was named head coach of the Black Stars earlier this month, replacing James Kwasi Appiah, whose contract expired at the end of 2019.

And according to him, aside the skills and talent, players must be dedicated and committed before they can earn a call up to the national team.

“I know that there are situations where some players have been looked down upon. It would change,” Akonnor told the media.

“Beyond the skill and talent, they must show commitment. We need a united front, proper teamwork and that would take us a long way. I’ve come a long way and I would continue to be myself,” he said.
