Otto Addo has confirmed that he will no longer serve as Head Coach of the Black Stars following the team’s exit from the Group Stages of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The Black Stars needed at least a draw against Uruguay in the final round of games in Group H to advance to the Round of 16. However, they were knocked out after they lost 2-0 to Uruguay and South Korea won 2-1 against Portugal in the other game.
Speaking after the game, Otto Addo revealed that he will no longer serve as head coach of the Black Stars, adding that he made that clear even before he took over the Assistant manager role last year.
“I said when I started as an assistant in October last year, it was clear that I would stop after the World Cup. At the moment, me and my family see our future in Germany. I like my role at Dortmund, we are very happy there,” Otto Addo told the press.
“From the first day, I said if we qualified for the World Cup I would resign after no matter what, even if we were world champions. This is a decision for my family” he added.
The development means the Ghana Football Association (GFA) must appoint a new head coach for the team ahead of the resumption of the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers in March.
