Head Coach of the national football team, Charles Kwabla Akonnor, will gross $25,000 in monthly salaries, whilst serving his two-year contract.
Spokesperson of the Sports Ministry, Mr Kofi Asare Brako, has said that the cedi equivalent of the said amount would be paid as per terms of his contract.
The Black Stars Manager is yet to sign the final contractual agreement after reportedly agreeing personal terms with the government, but details of the contract suggest he will receive $10,000 less than his predecessor, Kwasi Appiah, under whom he served briefly as an assistant coach.
He will be allocated an official vehicle and will lodge in the apartment set aside for his position which was previously occupied by his former boss.
“In the contract, C.K Akonnor will be taking $25,000. It is in cedi equivalent”….”The contract is for two years.”
“Akonnor will move into the apartment which was previously occupied by Appiah and will also take the official car,” Kofi Asare Brako said.
The former captain of the Black Stars was appointed to lead the national team after the expiration of Kwasi Appiah’s contract at the end of December, 2019.
Prior to his appointment, C.K. Akonnor had worked in similar capacity in the Ghanaian league coaching Eleven Wise, Ashanti Gold, Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak on his way to the top.
