Akonnor says Ghanaian football has gotten poorer

Akonnor says Ghanaian football has gotten poorer

14 May 2019, 12:50

Asante Kotoko head coach Charles Akonnor feels Ghanaian football is not going forward.

The ex-Black Stars forward who also enjoyed a career in Europe, most successfully at Germany’s SC Fortuna Köln, argues there are substandard academies.

“Coaches are struggling because we don’t have a youth system at all. The game is getting poorer,” C.K Akonnor said to 3FM.

The 45-year-old  Kotoko mentor also added that the appreciation for English football does not really inspire efforts to improve local football.

“We admire the English Premiership a lot but the effort to get our local league to that level has always been a problem,” he added.
