Ex-Northern Ireland international, Chris Hughton, is keen to make a fast start to his reign as the new head coach of the Ghana national football team, the Black Stars.
The team is gearing up to take on Angola in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game, and Hughton is focused on hitting the ground running in his new role.
Although his announcement as the new head coach did not come as a surprise to many, it was met with excitement from all across the country. He has announced a squad that has its core from the one that featured at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
It is expected that this core will enable him to instill his ideas into the squad quickly because most of them are used to him being the team’s technical advisor.
Ghana is playing Angola on 23 March in Kumasi, at the Baba Yara Stadium and the coach is determined to take all three points at home.
Chris Hughton will bring a wealth of experience to bear on the team, having managed Tottenham Hotspur, Norwich, and Brighton and Hove Albion.
