Ex Coach of Obuasi AshGold, Charles Kobina Akunnor has issued a stern warning to the Chief Executive Officer of his for outfit in the person of Mr. Fredrick Acheampong.
Mr. Acheampong, popularly known as Achiee also works as a Sports Journalist for Kessben FM in Kumasi. He is deemed to have made some unwarranted explanations in some media outlets following the dismissal of CK as coach of the Obuasi based club.
Akunnor was dismissed last week after he was found doing TV punditry on the 2018 FIFA World Cup when he was expected to report on duty.
However, Akunnor is not happy with respect to the aftermarth comments from Achie concerning his wages and earnings in public when such details should have remained confidential per their contractual obligations.
He released a statement on Wednesday to state his position on the development.
My attention has been drawn several statements being peddled around by AshGold CEO Mr. Acheampong Frederick after I agreed to part ways with the club.
I wish to state that as a professional, I respect my contract as a coach with any club I work with and do same even after leaving the club.
I have been a player for the club and I’m proud to have returned to the club as a coach.
I, however, wish to draw the attention of the CEO of the club to stay away from telling blatant lies about me aimed at tarnishing my image.
His incessant discussion of my private issues including my salaries on public radio and other public platforms must cease since I am no longer his employee.
My contract with the club before I left did not permit them to make my financial engagements public and I will entreat him to respect that and desist from discussion my private issues in public.
Again, I wish to state that whether I was sacked or we parted ways, our marriage has broken up and we must accept and move on instead of his consistent attempt to take me to the cleaners.
The football industry is a big one and so far as we continue to live by it, we are likely to meet again one day so it will be better for him to keep quiet about me before I am forced to slap him with any legal suit.
Signed….. Coach C. K. Akonnor (Former Black Stars skipper)
C.K Akunnor guided the team which nearly sunk into relegation in the 2016/17 season and left with team now placed second on the current league table ahead of a possible win of the title.
He was the first of two coaches fired by their clubs respectively in the wake of the impasse that has brought Ghana football to a stand still. Inter Allies have also dismissed their Japanese coach, Kenichi Yahstuhashyi earlier this week.
