The Ghana Football Association has named former Kumasi Asante Kotoko head coach Akonor Charles Kwablan as one of the deputy coaches of the senior national team of the country popularly referred to as the Black Stars.

The 45-year-old former captain of the Black Stars of Ghana was a great midfielder in his days as a footballer. He retired and became a coach in 2009 after picking up his first job Sekondi Wise Fighters.

CK as he is popularly known has been in the field as a coach for 10 years with spells at Accra Hearts of Oak, Ashanti Gold in two spells and most recently Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

He left Kotoko in March this year after successfully guiding the club to the group stage of the 2019 CAF Confederation Cup.

In August 2019, CK told that he was ready to take up the role of a national team manager after amassing sufficient experience at club level.

The former VFL Wolfsburg midfielder now returns to the Black Stars camp he knows very well as a technician.

Akonor narrowly missed out on the 17-man race for the Guinea job but now has a chance to serve “mother Ghana” from one of the most cherished positions.
