Black Stars assistant coach George Boateng quits Aston Villa U-23 job

Black Stars second assistant coach George Boateng has resigned as Aston Villa’s U-23 coach.

Boateng wants to devote his entire attention to the Black Stars ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

“Leaving Aston Villa after 3 wonderful seasons was not an easy decision but having the opportunity to coach my country at the World Cup was too good to turn down,” Boateng wrote on Instagram.

“I have learned so much and I’m grateful for the time spent at this beautiful, amazing club. I want to thank the players, staff and fans for their wonderful support and I wish the club every success in the future.”

“As for now, I will concentrate on my role as the Assistant Coach of Ghana ahead of the World Cup.”

After a year of coaching the U-18 team, the former Netherlands international was appointed as Aston Villa’s U-23 coach in 2020.

He previously managed Kelantan F.C. in Malaysia and Blackburn Rovers U-13.

Boateng was named a permanent Black Stars assistant coach after assisting coach Otto Addo in qualifying the team for the World Cup, where Ghana will face Portugal, South Korea, and Uruguay in the group stage.
