Chris Hughton opens up on his duties as Black Stars technical advisor

Former Brighton manager, Chris Hughton has opened up on his duties as the technical advisor for the Black Stars.

Hughton together with head coach Otto Addo and his assistants George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani have been appointed by the Ghana Football Association to manage the Black Stars until the end of the year.

The quartet will help in preparing the team for the upcoming 2023 AFCON qualifiers and the 2022 World Cup.

Chris Hughton in an interview has explained the reason why he accepted to work with Otto Addo and outlined his duties as technical advisor.

“Before the qualification games I knew of Otto, his history and where he worked – but I didn’t know him personally,” Hughton told BBC Sport Africa.

“I knew he was well-thought-of and has had a good football education. He is at Dortmund, which is a very forward-thinking club and he is part of the processes there.

“We have got on very well and are having regular conversations now.”

Hughton says his role will be to support Addo and his staff and “take the pressure” off the technical team.

“I know the balance,” Hughton said.

“I will be involved in lots of the dialogue with the technical staff but with regards to squad, team selection and tactics, I know that is the responsibility of the coach. Any way I can help him and support him in that, I will do.”

Addo spent his entire playing career in Germany but won 15 international caps for Ghana, featuring at the 2006 World Cup.
