Konadu replaces Ibrahim Tanko, who was unable to lead the team to the Olympic Games after exiting the group stage of the U-23 AFCON last year in Morocco.

According to the GFA, Konadu’s appointment aligns with their football philosophy of identifying, grooming, and continuously improving talented players for competitive age category teams and the senior national team, the Black Stars.

Konadu, a former Ghana international, was part of the technical team that led Ghana to the gold medal win during the 2011 All African Games in Maputo, Mozambique. He previously led the Black Meteors between 2013 and 2014.
