Vincent Oppong Asamoah who is the Former deputy minister for Youth and Sports has called on the Ghana Football Association to make Chris Hughton the new Black Stars head coach. The Black Stars coaching role is currently vacant after the recent coach Otto Addo resigned immediately after the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The FA is set to appoint a new manager and Oppong Asamoah wants the Ex Brighton Manager, Chris Hughton who served as a Technical Adviser to Otto Addo in Qatar to be appointed as the new boss of the Black Stars.
“Let’s all be honest, our Black Stars started declining long ago, it did not start today,” Asamoah said. “I was unhappy Otto Addo resigned because I feel he had enough experience and lessons to correct his mistakes and build a better team for us. I am very sure the Black Stars would have done very well going forward with Otto Addo as the coach.
He added that since Ghanaians have decided to rely on foreign players for the Black Stars, then they don’t need a local coach and suggests Chris Hughton takes up the role. Vincent Oppong believes he can do the job but concluded that should he also fails with the Black Stars, then the problem will be beyond coaching but rather with us as a country.
