Black Meteors technical team dissolved after failure to qualify for Olympic Games

The Management Committee Chairman, Frederick Acheampong has confirmed that the Black Meteors team has been dissolved after the U-23 Africa Cup of Nations exit.

According to Acheampong, the technical team comprising of Ibrahim Tanko (head coach), Godwin Attram (assistant) and Michael Osei (assistant) will no longer serve in their various capacities after failing to qualify the country for next year’s Olympic Games.

Ghana exited the 2023 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations at the group stage after an opening game victory over Congo, a 5-1 demolishing at the hands of Morocco and a 1-1 draw against Guinea.

“This team was formed for the purposes of qualifying for the Olympic Games and that did not happen. If it happens that the executive council wants to offer the coaches another contract, then fine, but I do not make an appointment. Currently, the team stands dissolved because they did not qualify for the Olympic Games and there is no tournament for us next year,” he said on 3FM.
