Chairman of the Black Stars Management Committee and Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko, George Amoako says he is optimistic that the newly appointed Black Stars coach, Charles Kwablan Akonnor will succeed as coach of the senior national team.
According to the GFA Executive Council member, people should stop making up stories that seem to suggest he and Akonnor had a problem when the ex-Ghana captain was coach of Asante Kotoko a few months ago.
