The Black Stars head coach, C.K Akunnor has jumped to the defense of Razak Abalora after his error handed Morocco a 1-0 win over Ghana in an International friendly.

The Kotoko goalkeeper has been widely criticized for his error and a section of the Ghanaian fans have called for him to be dropped from the National team.

The 24 year old failed to deal with a Ziyech’s freekick which was pounced upon by El Yamiq to give the Atlas Lions the win over the Black Stars.

Coach Akunnor has however rallied support for the goalkeeper insisting he is a good goalkeeper

“He has made a mistake, he knows himself but we are not in the position to kill him. We need each and everyone to be at a good level.

“Yes, we have to move on, we have to encourage him. He is a good goalkeeper. No doubt about that. We will not kill him; we will encourage him on how to improve.”

The Black Stars are scheduled to play Ivory Coast in an International friendly on Saturday at the Cape Coast Stadium.
