The EK Afranie Foundation today marked three years of the unfortunate demise of the former Black Stars Coach.
Afranie passed away in 2016 after an ambulance transporting him to the hospital was involved in an accident, a news which left the country in a depressed state due to the Coach’s services to the nation.
His Foundation, EK Afranie Memorial Foundation which was set up in remembrance of the celebrated Ghanaian trainer have been involved in several charity works donating to separate unites at the Korle Bu and Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospitals.
The 2001 FIFA U20 silver winning Coach remains one of the most successful Ghanaian Coaches in history having chalked several successes with the various national teams and Clubs in the country.
He made history as the first Coach to qualify the Black Queens to the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 1999 and also managed top Clubs such as Kotoko and Hearts of Oak.
