An emergency meeting to decide the fate of Black Stars coach, Charles Kwablan Akonnor, is scheduled to be convened on Friday by the Executive Committee Members of the Ghana Football Association.

The Ghana gaffer has come under intense criticism following Ghana’s uninspiring performance in their World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia and South Africa last Friday and Monday respectively.

Since the two qualifiers Ghanaians appear divided about the performance of the coach with a section calling for the head of the coach for non-performance while others believe the players are not committed.

However, a member of the management committee, Randy Abbey has hinted that the ExCo members are due for an emergency meeting on Friday to deliberate on the way forward of the coach.

 "We went to play a match and it did not go well with us and the team arrived on Tuesday,”.

"The GFA has fixed Friday for a meeting so what is the big deal about it?

"Everybody has the chance to discuss the game and nothing stops anybody from discussing the game but nobody can rush the Ghana Football Association [GFA] into doing anything.

"People must take their time and cool heads must prevail. We have to take our time and analyze the situation properly.

"It is not a panic situation and nobody should press the panic button," he added.
