The Coach of Great Olympics, Annor Walker, has been confirmed as the new head coach of the wholly domestic men’s national team, the Black Stars B.
Walker’s appointment confirms the exit of Ibrahim Tanko, who until recently was coaching the Black Stars B, according to a communication from the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
In a relatively successful career, Walker has won the MTN FA Cup, leading Nania FC to beat Asante Kotoko 1-0 in 2011 final.
A year later, he would be influential in Berekum Chelsea’s historic group stage appearance in the CAF Champions League, in their maiden campaign. He has also had stints with Tudu Mighty Jets and Kpando Heart of Lions.
Walker will be assisted by WAFA head coach Dr Prosper Nartey Ogun. Former Ghana international, Richard Kingston also joins as the team’s goalkeeper’s trainer, with Emmanuel Armah joining as Physical Trainer.
In other related appointments, Dr Prince Pambo has been named the team’s doctor. Edmund Ackah will serve as the club’s Welfare Officer while Abdulai Osman serves as a masseur. Justice Kofi Mensah and Haruna Seidu are the new Equipment Officers of the team.
