HEAD Coach of Dreams FC, Charles Kwabena Akonnor has said it is too early for coaches to be sacked since the league is only three weeks old.

The former Black Stars skipper rather made a passionate appeal to clubs in the competition to be patient with their coaches as the league progresses.

“What the coaches need now is support from club owners, players and fans as well to perform to the satisfaction of all. When issues about sack and others come in, it will rather make things murkier and would go a long way to disrupt the progress of the team.”

His reaction followed the resignation of Aduana Stars coach, Nurudeen Ahmed and a subsequent threat from Dwarfs coach, J.E Sarpong to follow suit if things do not improve in the side that had then played two games without a point.

Coach Akonnor was surprised that just after two matches in the Ghana Premier League (GPL), some coaches have come under intense pressure to deliver with Coach Nurudeen Amadu resigning from Aduana Stars and Coach Joseph Emmanuel Sarpong of Ebusua Dwarfs FC also making comments to a similar effect.

C.K Akunnor told the GNA Sports, that “I am a bit surprised about how coaches are being put under pressure from management and supporters to resign. I think coaches need to be supported by their management because it is early days yet”.

Akonnor believes the success of his club was due to the open relationship between the playing body and the technical team as well as management.

C.K’s Dreams FC are unbeaten after match day three after holding Inter Allies at the Tema Stadium to a pulsating 2-2 drawn encounter and are currently occupying third position behind Wa All Stars and Accra Hearts of Oak with seven points apiece but with an inferior goal aggregate.
