Chris Hughton appointed Black Stars coach

Former Newcastle United and Brighton manager Chris Hughton has taken on the role of head coach for the Black Stars. 

He previously served as technical advisor for the team during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Following the departure of the previous head coach, Otto Addo, Hughton will lead the team with the support of assistant coaches George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani.

“The Ghana Football Association has the pleasure to appoint Chris Hughton as Head Coach of the Black Stars following extensive deliberations between the two parties,” the GFA said.

“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.

The expectations for Hughton are high as he aims to bring the team to new heights after a disappointing performance in both the Africa Cup of Nations and the World Cup in 2022.
