Ashgold part ways with C.K. Akunnor
Premier League side, AshantiGold FC have terminated the contract of head coach Charles Kwabena Akunnor.
The former Black Stars skipper was supposed to resume training with the Miners on Monday but was surprisingly seen on GTV doing punditry.
Akunnor who parted company with the club on Thursday had been suspended before that decision.
His suspension came as a result of neglecting team duties for a punditry job on the ongoing FIFA World Cup.
He joined the Obuasi based club from Dreams FC after Bashiru Hayford left his duties as the head coach of the club.
Assistant coach, Yakubu Mambo has been tasked to take over first-team duties.
Below is the statement signed and released by the management of the club:
ASHGOLD PART WAYS WITH C. K. AKONNOR
Ashantigold SC has today disengaged with the services of its Head Coach Mr C. K. Akonnor.
Whilst there is a huge sentiment for Mr Akonnor, who has done so much for the club both as a player and coach, the decision was taken in the best interest of Ashgold.
Management would like to place on record Mr Akonnor’s tremendous contribution to the club in the last one year, and as such, would like to thank him and wish him well in his future endeavours.
The Technical Director Mr John Christensen will take charge of the first team technical duties until further notice.
Management would like to assure Ashgold fans of its fullest commitment to the well being and success of the club.
Thank you. SIGNED:
