GFA vrs Government, who gets to choose next Black Stars Coach


On Monday GFA President, Kurt Okraku together with Tony Baffoe, former Ghana international and Bernhard Lippert, who is the technical director flew to Germany to hold talks with Otto Addo over the Black Stars coaching job.

After talks, Otto Addo agreed to become the next Black Stars coach,

Addo, was part of Milovan Rajevac’s technical team that has been disbanded after Ghana’s poor campaign at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] in Cameroon.

However, after talks, Otto Addo has agreed to take over the Black Stars job but he has asked the Ghana FA officials to hold talks with Borussia Dortmund on their intention to hire him as a national team coach.

Meanwhile, the Ghana government is also pushing for the appointment of former Brighton & Hove Albion manager Christopher William Gerard Hughton.

A meeting was held at the Jubilee House on Monday and the former Premier League coach has been assured of the job by the government.

Black Stars next international match is against Nigeria in the 2022 World Cup playoff in March later this year.

The winner of the two-legged tie will book a place in the Mundial in Qatar next year. Having missed out in 2018 in Russia, Ghana will be hoping to return to the global showpiece.
