Black Stars coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor has revealed his reason for choosing former Hearts of Oak gaffer David Duncan as his assistant.
According to the ex-Ghana captain he wanted someone who could challenge him into making the best decisions as coach of the Black Stars, and believes Duncan is the right man.
“I was looking for someone who could look at me and tell me I am wrong or right. Someone who would be honest with me on what I do. Duncan was that man,” C.K Akonnor told Joy Sports.
Akonnor and Duncan were appointed coaches of the Black Stars in January following the end of Kwesi Appiah’s second stint with the senior national team.
The pair have already began work with Duncan heavily involved with the scouting of local players for the Black Stars, with five named in the squad for the Nations Cup qualifiers in March, only to be cancelled due to the coronavirus.
Duncan has enormous experience on the local scene, having coached two of Ghana’s glamorous clubs Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko.
