Ghana's No. 1

BREAKING NEWS: GFA confirms Otto Addo as permanent Black Stars coach; Hughton, Boateng and Dramani to support him

Published on: 24 May 2022

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) on Tuesday evening named Otto Addo as the permanent head coach of the Black Stars until December 2022.

Following extensive talks with Addo and Dortmund, where the former Ghana international works as a trainer scout, the GFA confirmed the news.

With both parties agreeing to a deal, Addo will combine his Black Stars duties with his role at Dortmund.

Addo will be supported by familiar faces.

Former Premier League manager Chris Hughton will be the team's technical advisor, with George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani working as assistant coaches.

In March, the coaches were appointed to interim roles, and they ensured that Ghana secured qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup at the expense of Nigeria.

The Ministry of Youth and Sports, which is responsible for paying national team coaches, has approved the decision.

"The Ghana Football Association has appointed Otto Addo, Chris Hughton, George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani as coaches of the senior national team, the Black Stars until the end of December 2022," GFA wrote on their website.

"The quartet who masterminded Ghana’s qualification to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 tournament will stay on to see to Ghana's preparation to the world cup, the 2023 AFCON qualifiers and the world cup itself."

"This follows an exhaustive negotiation and engagement with all relevant stakeholders including the Ministry of Youth and Sports."

"The coaches will soon name their squad for Matchday 1 and 2 of the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nation Cote D’Ivoire 2023 qualifiers and the four-nation tournament in Japan."

Ghana will play Madagascar and Central African Republic early next month in the qualifiers.
