Chris Hughton Appointed As New Black Stars Head Coach
Chris Hughton, a former manager of Newcastle United and Brighton, has been named the Black Stars’ head coach.
He previously worked as the team’s technical advisor for the Qatar-hosted World Cup in 2022.
Hughton will take charge of the team in Otto Addo’s absence, with the assistance of assistant coaches George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani.
After careful consideration between the two sides, the Ghana Football Association announced that Chris Hughton had been chosen as the Black Stars’ head coach.
To that effect GFA released a statement iterating:
“The appointment is in line with the vision of the GFA to continue with the project of building a formidable squad that started with Otto Addo in the lead-up to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 tournament. Mr. Hughton has been the Technical Advisor of the Black Stars for the past twelve months.
“The GFA has also decided to maintain Assistant Coaches George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani. The three coaches were part of the technical team for the World Cup in Qatar.
Details about the duration of the contract and terms of engagement would be announced in due course,” it concluded.
Hughton faces great expectations as he looks to elevate the squad following dismal showings at the 2022 World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations.
