Otto Addo appointed Black Stars coach for Nigeria game

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) have confirmed the appointment of Otto Addo as the interim Black Stars coach for the crucial World Cup playoff against Nigeria.

The Borussia Dortmund talent development coach will be supported by former Norwich City and Brighton & Hove Albion manager, Chris Hughton, who will act as the new technical advisor to the new technical team.

Both Addo and Hughton have been heavily linked with the Black Stars coaching role since the dismissal of Milovan Rajevac after a poor Africa Cup of Nations campaign in Cameroon, where Ghana finished bottom of their group.

The FA also confirmed that Aston Villa under-23 boss, George Boateng and Nordsjaelland coach, Mas-Ud Didi Dramani will also join the new Black Stars technical team as assistant coaches ahead of next month’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier play-off against Nigeria.

The decision was taken by the Executive Council of the GFA at a meeting held in Accra on Wednesday, February 9, 2022.

Ghana takes 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.
