Former Newcastle United and Brighton manager Christopher William Gerard Hughton has been appointed by the Ghana Football Association to lead the Black Stars.
Hughton’s appointment follows the resignation of Otto Addo as head coach following Ghana’s withdrawal from the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
After being appointed in March, Addo led the group with help from George Boateng, Mas-Ud Didi Dramani, and Hughton serving as the group’s technical advisor.
Hughton will take over as the Black Stars’ next manager, the Ghana FA has confirmed, more than a month after the position first became vacant.
“The Ghana Football Association has the pleasure to appoint Chris Hughton as Head Coach of the Black Stars following extensive deliberations between the two parties.
“The appointment is in line with the vision of the GFA to continue with the project of building a formidable squad that started with Otto Addo in the lead-up to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 tournament,” the GFA said in a statement on its website.
Meanwhile, George Boateng and Didi Dramani will maintain their posts as the team’s assistant coaches.
