OFFICIAL: Ashanti Gold Part Ways With C.K. Akonnor

C.K. Akonnor

Ashanti Gold have parted ways with coach C.K. Akunnor, the club has confirmed.

Last week, the 44-year-old trainer was accused of swapping his duty for TV punditry work.

Due to that he was suspended by the club for failing to supervise the team’s training.

But the club has now made it official by parting company with the former Black Stars captain.

The Miners sit top of the standing and are gunning to clinch their second league title in three years.

Deputy coach Yakubu Mambo takes control of first-team duties “until further notice”.

“It’s true that Ashgold has parted ways with head CK Akunnor,” Chief Executive Officer Frederick Acheampong confirmed on Happy FM.

“We appreciate all his good works for the club but sometimes things like these happen.”

“The reasons behind his sacking will be made known to the public very soon.”

“Yakubu Mambo will take over first team duties now until we appoint a substantive coach.”

Akunnor was appointed the successor to Bashir Hayford midway through last term with the Obuasi-based club one point above the drop zone, but the former Black Stars captain was able to transform their fortunes as they maintained their league status.
