 CK Akunnor has been sacked by Ghana Premier League Ashgold as their head coach today, June 29,2018.

There has been no reason stated for his sacking. However, the former coach was earlier suspended by the club after failing to turn up for training. He was later seen doing punditry work on TV on the Russia 2018 World cup.

Chief Executive Officer of AshantiGold Frederick Acheampong has confirmed the club is looking for a new coach after it sacked CK Akonnor.

"It’s true that Ashgold has parted ways with head CK Akonnor," He said on Happy FM.

"We appreciate all his good works for the club but sometimes things like these happen. The reasons for his sacking will be made known to the public very soon."

Deputy coach Yakubu Mambo has been placed in charge until further notice.

CK Akunnor leaves the Miners lying second in the suspended GPL.
