Paintsil: Akonnor would have qualified Ghana for 2022 World Cup


The ex-Leicester City man shares his thoughts on the ability of Ghanaian coaches following recent bad spells with the Black Stars
Former Ghana right-back John Paintsil believes immediate-past Black Stars coach CK Akonnor was on course to steer the team to the 2022 World Cup despite a topsy-turvy qualifying start which led to his sack.

Akonnor was dismissed from his post earlier this month following a 1-0 away defeat to South Africa, three days after his team struggled to register a 1-0 home win over Ethiopia in their first game on the road to Qatar.

The results left the Black Stars second on the table in Group G ahead of consecutive matches against Zimbabwe next month.
