The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced a three-member committee and tasked it to find a new Black Stars head coach in the next 72 hours.

The formation of the committee has become necessary after the Executive Council of the GFA’s decision to sack head coach, CK Akonnor.

“The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association has taken a decision to terminate the appointment of Black Stars Coach Charles Akonnor and his two Assistants with immediate effect,” a communique on the GFA website has said.

In the GFA communique, it adds that it has formed a committee to settle on a new head coach for the country’s national team in the next three days.

As a result of the content of the GFA communique, it is likely the new head coach of the Black Stars will be named before the close of the week.

Meanwhile, all two assistant coaches of the Black Stars have also been sacked.
