Former EPL manager Chris Hughton lands in Accra to chase Black Stars job

Former Norwich City and Brighton & Hove Albion manager, Chris Hughton is in Ghana ahead of possibly taking over vacant Black Stars coaching job, according to Joy Sports.

The Irish born trainer is among a number of coaches listed as possible candidates to take over the managerial job following the sacking of Milovan Rajevac on Wednesday, January 26.

63 year old Hughton is of Ghanaian descent

Hughton, 63, is of Ghanaian heritage through his father and is expected to have a meeting with the executive council of the Ghana Football Association during his time in the country.

Joy Sports understands a high ranking member of the government is pushing for the appointment of the former Norwich City manager as the next head coach of the senior national team.

Meanwhile, the GFA’s executive council have a different option for the job.

Rajevac was relieved of his duties as the head coach following Ghana’s disastrous performance in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon.

Borussia Dortmund assistant coach Otto Addo, Aston Villa youth coach George Boateng and former Cameroon assistant coach Ibrahim Tanko are said to be part of a number of coaches being considered for the vacant job.
