The Ghana Football Association (GFA) have confirmed the appointment of CK Akunnor as their new senior national team coach.

The 45-year-old succeeds James Kwesi Appiah, who was sacked from the Black Stars post earlier this month.

Charles Kwablan Akunnor is a former captain of the national team and represented Ghana at four Africa Cup of Nations tournaments, as well as the 1996 Olympic Games.

He will be assisted by David Duncan, while the remainder of the technical team is made up as follows: Najawu Issah (goalkeeper coach), Dr. Christ Adomoako (team doctor), Henry Martey (welfare officer) SK Ankomah, George Nii Anum Amasa (masseurs), Daniel Yankey and Suleman Zampa (equipment officers).

Akunnor was most recently in charge at Ghanaian club Asante Kotoko and has worked at Sekondi Wise Fighters, Hearts of Oak and Ashanti Gold.

His first task will be to secure a place in the 2021 AFCON finals, with Ghana set to resume their Group C campaign with back-to-back matches against Sudan in August and September later this year.
