Lack of organization caused our defeat – CK Akonnor
Ghana Black Stars coach believes lack of organization was the main reason for their embarrassing defeat against Mali in Friday game in Turkey.
Mali registered a 3-0 win against Ghana in CK Akonnor’s first game as the Black Stars coach.
Ghanaians used social media to voice out their displeasure and question the mentality and quality of the coach and the entire squad ahead of their competitive game next month.
CK Akonnor, however, believes Mali were not as good as people think and blamed their loss to lack of organization and not being prepared enough for the encounter.
“I won’t blame the players for the defeat but the key thing which resulted our loss to Mali was that the team was not organized,” Akonnor told Adom TV.
“The players didn’t know themselves because most of them were debutants and even the first time they’re playing together.”
“We trained for only two days and there was lack of understanding as well. These are the few things which affected us during the game”
“Mali didn’t play anything extraordinary but they were an organized side which handed them the victory”
