Otto Addo and Chris Hughton take over Black Stars

Former Ghanaian international Otto Addo has been handed the responsibility of coaching Ghana’s senior national team, the Black Stars for the 2022 World Cup playoff game against Nigeria in March. He will be assisted by George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has also appointed former Newcastle United manager Chris Hughton as a Technical Adviser to the team.

“Otto Addo, a former Ghana player is currently the Assistant Coach of German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund – he boasts of about 13 years of coaching experience that dates back to 2009 when he first took up the job of an Assistant Coach at Hamburger SV”, a statement from the GFA said.

The 46-year-old Otto Addo has previously worked as a scout for the Black Stars in 2013 prior to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.

The Black Stars will take on the Super Eagles at the Cape Coast stadium on March 24 before travelling to Nigeria for the 2nd leg at the Abuja sports stadium on Sunday, March 27, 2022.

Otto Addo is taking over from Coach Milovan Rajevac who was sacked in January after a poor outing at the just ended 2021 Africa Nations Cup.
