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 open.
STATEMENT FROM GHANA FOOTBALL ASSOCIATIONS
“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.”
Just like they did under Otto Addo, Boateng and Didi Dramani will maintain their posts as the team’s assistant coaches.
