Chris Hughton To Be Unveiled As Blackstars Coach Before Ghana-Angola Match – GFA

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has revealed that the new Blackstars head coach, Chris Hughton will be unveiled to the public next coach.

Since the official communication to hand him the job two weeks ago, that conversation has never been revisited with his unveiling delayed due to the former Newcastle United manager’s no-show.

According to the Communications Director of GFA, the coach’s absence was due to the death of a family relative as he needed time to sort some things out.

“Chris had to stay in the UK because he lost his dad and needed time with his family and plan the burial service. That’s why he’s not been to Ghana yet,” he told 3 Sports.

“We expect Chris in Ghana next week if everything goes according to plan. We are constantly engaging on his unveiling, media engagement, and build-up to the games.”

He also adds that the squad announcement ahead of Ghana’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations Group E doubleheader against Angola will also be made official on his arrival.

“He is working, Chris and his assistants will be unveiled together. When he arrives we will communicate the date and venue for his unveiling and then use that as part of the build-up to the game against Angola. There will also be squad announcements, details of the contract, and the targets set for the new technical team.”

Ghana hosts Angola at the Baba Yara Stadium on March 23 before taking a trip to Luanda for the return fixture four days later.
