Akonnor, Former Black Stars Coach Joins PSL’s Amazulu 


Former Black Stars of Ghana coach, CK Akonnor has joined South African Premier Soccer League side, Amazulu FC on a three-year contract.

The former Accra Hearts of Oak coach will be replacing former Amazulu coach and South African football legend, Benni McCarthy who quit as coach some days ago.

Akonnor was sacked as Ghana’s coach just after two games into the World Cup qualifying campaign after a loss to South Africa.

His replacement at the time, Milovan Rajevac was also sacked by Ghana months later after an embarrassing AFCON outing. Their latest coach, Otto Addo has however secured a World Cup ticket for them.

A former footballer, he played for German Bundesliga side, VFL Wolfsburg in his playing days and had 51 appearances for the Black Stars.
