Charles Kwablan Akonnor, head coach of the Black Stars has revealed the technical team’s criteria to select players for the Black stars when football returns
Akonnor stated his player call ups will strictly be based on performance and not by their big names or the big clubs they play for.
“We have forty players in our data,” he told Joy Sports. “And forty should be a good number, within the forty we can be changing but we will keep the number forty and we will be looking at it,” he added.
Akonnor is keen on rotating the team for game days as he builds on a strong team for the next Africa Cup of Nations.
“As time goes on we will be looking at the performance which will be the most important thing. I will not call players based on their names,” said Akonnor.
“Because he is C.K Akonnor and players for Manchester United so I should invite him, no!
“If he is at Manchester United, what is he doing, is he playing, is he with the second team, Is he regular. And then you look at somebody at Asante Kotoko and somebody there (Europe) and is not playing. It becomes a big challenge me.”
