The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced Chris Hughton as the new Head Coach of the Black Stars.
The former Newcastle United and Brighton coach replaces Otto Addo who left his post after Ghana’s exit from the Group Stages of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
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.
Having served as Technical Advisor for the Black Stars in the past 12 months, Chris Hughton is no new face to the team.
The 64-year old’s immediate task is to qualify Ghana to the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) to be played in Ivory Coast next year.
Hughton will be assisted by George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani who were both part of Ghana’s technical team at the 2022 World Cup.
Details about the duration of the contract and terms of engagement would be announced in due course by the Ghana FA.
Ghana’s next assignment will be in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers against Angola. Coach Chris Hughton and his team will hope to get off to a flying start.
