Charles Kwablan Akonnor says he has nothing but respect for his former boss, Kwesi Appiah who helped him secure the Black Stars coaching job.
Akonnor, 46, was appointed head coach of the national football team in January this year following the departure of Kwesi Appiah.
In an interview with Ghana Football Association (GFA) communications team, Akonnor lauded Appiah’s decision to make him an assistant coach.
This, he believes helped him secure his dream job of heading the national football team.
The former Black Stars coach named Akonnor as his assistant and they worked together for two months.
“I went to him [before taking up the job] because before he got me to assist him there was a lot of discussion between us. I told him my opinion and what I stand for, he accepted that in good fate and so once he is no more the coach, there was the need to for me to give him that respect,” Akonnor said.
He added; “Because truth be told, he is the one who got me there, nobody did. It’s a miracle for me to be his assistant and within two months and after two matches, I am the head. It can only be a miracle, nobody [else] got me there and so I have to give him that respect and I will continue to give him that respect.”
Akonnor has signed a two years contract.
