The new coach of Ghana’s senior men’s national team is unveiled on Monday in Kumasi in the West African country.
Hughton is the new boss of the Black Stars, having last month signed a contract with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) until 31 December 2024. “The unveiling ceremony took place at the SG Mall in Kumasi,” a statement said Monday.
« Representing Ghana and the Black Stars as head coach is something I’m incredibly proud of. It’s something I’m going to give everything to make the team as successful as possible. I will give everything to ensure the communication and the relationship I have with this association and the supporters. Our game is about support – from the association, but more importantly from the support of the wide range of fans we have and that starts with a very tough match in Kumasi. Hughton said.
Hughton will prove himself in Ghana’s next two qualifying matches against Angola this week. Ghana will host Palancas Negras on Thursday, March 23 at Baba Yara Sports Stadium. The second leg takes place in Luanda on Tuesday 27 March.
George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani are also announced as assistant coaches. “Chris Hughton, who previously worked with the Black Stars as a technical advisor, is expected to qualify Ghana for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Côte d’Ivoire and also lead the team to glory,” the GFA said.
