Veteran Black Stars midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has paid glowing tribute to his former Black Stars coach C.K Akonnor who he watched play for the Black Stars and then Goldfields.

The midfielder in a heartfelt tribute paid homage to the player C.K Akonnor he admired in his playing days with the Black Stars and his former club AshGold SC and C.K Akonnor the coach.

Wakaso took to his social media handle on Twitter to wish C.K Akonnor well in his next job.

"When I was a little boy in Tamale, I watched you play football. Later, I became a ball boy/ player for Gold Fields where you played, Wakaso wrote on Twitter.

"You became my coach at the Black Stars. Thank you for everything and best of luck in your next job. I know you will succeed."

Ironically, Mubarak Wakaso handed C.K Akonnor his only win in his last four matches prior to his exit in Ghana's 1-0 win over Ethiopia.

The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association terminated the appointment of Black Stars Coach Charles Akonnor and his two Assistants on Monday.

This follows the team's poor showing in the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers where Ghana struggled with a limp win against Ethiopia before losing to South Africa in Johannesburg.

The committee which has Dr. Randy Abbey and Upper East Regional Football Association Chairman, Alhaji Salifu Zida as members have been tasked to find a Head Coach and Assistant Coaches for the Black Stars within the next 72 hours.

Akonnor and his two assistant coaches David Duncan and Patrick Greveraars have paid the price with their jobs after dismal start in the opening two games in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

The Black Stars under C.K Akonnor managed just a single goal in his last four matches and won just four games out of 11 losing 5 and drawing two since his appointment in January 2020.
