Chris Hughton Applies For Vacant Black Stars Job
The former Republic of Ireland international, Chris Hughton is reported to have applied for the vacant managerial position of the Black Stars.
Ghana is currently without a substantive head coach after Otto Addo resigned in the aftermath of the Black Stars’ early exit from the 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup.
Otto Addo after stepping down as head coach of the Black Stars resumed his role with German giants Borussia Dortmund as a talent development coach.
Reports have it that Chris Hughton has submitted his CV for the vacant Black Stars job; he worked with the national team as a technical advisor during the World Cup and before that, during the World Cup playoffs with West African rivals Nigeria.
Chris Hughton with his ongoing role as technical advisor of the Black Stars is at the moment his favorite to land the job.
The Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Henry Asante Twum revealed in an interview with Asempa FM that well over 60 coaches have applied for the Black Stars job.
Mr. Asante Twum has stated that the Blacks Stars is one of the most attractive footballing brands on the African continent and thus the FA receives troves of applications for the head coach position on a daily basis.
The Black Stars will return to footballing action in March for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
