The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has confirmed the appointment of Otto Addo as the interim coach of the Black Stars. This is as a result of the crucial World Cup playoff against Nigeria.
Borussia Dortmund talent development coach will be assisted by former Norwich City and Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton, who will work as the new technical advisor to the new technical staff.
Both Addo and Hughton have been heavily linked with the Black Stars coaching role since Milovan Rajevac’s departure following a poor Africa Cup of Nations performance in Cameroon, where Ghana finished bottom of their group.
The FA also confirmed that Aston Villa under-23 boss, George Boateng and Nordsjaelland coach, Mas-Ud Didi Dramani will join the new Black Stars technical staff ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification play-off against Nigeria next month.
The GFA Executive Council made the decision at a meeting on February 9, 2022 in Accra. Ghana will face the Super Eagles at the Cape Coast stadium on March 24, 2022, before traveling to Nigeria for the second leg on March 27, 2022, at the Abuja Sports stadium.
