New coach of AshantiGold CK Akunnor says he wanted a bigger challenge that is why he moved to the Miners.
According to him, he was becoming comfortable at previous club Dreams FC.
Akunnor left high flying division one side Dreams to take up the challenge of coaching premier league strugglers AshantiGold despite their position on the league log where they are jostling to avoid the drop.
“A lot of people might not understand why I made such decision to join AshantiGold, this because I was comfortable at Dreams FC and remember i am also growing up as a coach and if am able to take Ashgold from that difficult situation, people will remember me for that.” He told Kumasi based Abusua FM.
“By God’s Grace, if we are able to put things in place, we will survive relegation.”
“We have been able to identify the problems but it is a collective responsibility. I mean the management, supporters and the most important thing is the players because they are on the field.”
“Ashgold will definitely sign some players but it will not be easy to sign all the players or the right players u want because of the time."
“Today is the last day so we will try to sign about three players. We need players who can work very hard.”
“All the department need to be strengthened. I mean from goalkeeper to the last man. We need the support of the fans at this difficult time. I have the believe that Ashgold will bounce back.”
