Ghana to Appoint a Dutch Coach For 2022 World Cup

The Black Stars of Ghana are without a substantive coach following the expiry of the two game mandate of the Otto led technical team.

Otto Addo was appointed head coach alongside former Newcastle United manager, Chris Hughton, ex-Dutch international, George Boateng and former Kotoko coach, Mas Ud Didi Dramani to steer Ghana’s qualification.

The four coaches prosecuted their work in grand style, eliminating West African rivals, Nigeria to book a slot in Qatar later this year.

The Black Stars under their four coaches were held to a goalless draw in the first leg of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers at the Baba Yara Stadium on March 25.

The result did not go down well with the teeming Ghanaian fans but the return leg four days later at the Moshood Abiola Stadium produced a different story.

The Black Stars got their noses in front through Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Partey - shocking the packed Moshood Abiola Stadium on March 29.

The Super Eagles however got the equalizer through captain, William Troost Ekong but it was not enough to secure a place in Qatar after Ghana qualified on the away goal rule.

Ghana is without a coach at the moment but the Ghana Football Association says it will soon appoint a new coach.

Reports in the media states that, Otto Addo and ex-Dutch midfielder, George Boateng will lead the team to Qatar.
