Samuel Nartey George, a prominent politician in Ghana, made the announcement on live television that the Ghana Football Association had selected Chris Hughton to take over as head coach of the Black Stars.
The Member of Parliament from the Ningo-Prampram constituency revealed this information on Joy Prime’s morning program on Monday.
According to what he claimed, “The position of coaching the Black Stars has already been granted to Chris Hughton because the GFA want someone they can manage.”
The former manager of Brighton and Hove Albion will take over for Otto Addo, who resigned after Ghana was eliminated in the group stage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Chris Hughton served as the technical adviser of the team at the Mundial while the Black Stars were competing.
Since Otto Addo tendered his resignation following the conclusion of the World Cup, the Ghana Football Association has been actively looking for someone to take his position.
Hughton, Steve McClaren, and Hector Cuper are the contenders that allegedly made the association’s shortlist for the position of manager. The association is said to have trimmed down its list of applicants for the post.
