A Member of Black Stars Technical Team to Reject His Role

Reports in the media indicate that, a member of the Black Stars new Technical team is set to reject his role.

Ghana last week names some personalities to handle the senior national male team, the the Black Stars for the final 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier. Ghana will face the Super Eagles of Nigeria over two legs for a slot at the next FIFA World Cup in Qatar and the task for the West African nations look daunting. The two legged games are set between March 24-29 with Ghana set to host the first leg at the Cape Coast Stadium and the leg billed for the Moshood Abiola Stadium. The Black Stars are faced with a must qualification to placate the despondent Ghanaian following dismal performance at the just ended 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Ghana exited the competition with just a single point from three Group C games where they lost the opening game by 1-0 to Morocco. They were held to a 1-1 draw by Gabon in the second group game before losing 3-2 to debutants, Comoros Island in the final group game. The feat was their first ever horrible performance since the 2006 edition held in Egypt. Following the poor performance, the technical team led by Milovan Rajevac was dissolved with the Black Stars management team reconstituted. The new look technical team now has former Newcastle United manager, Chris Hughton as the technical advisor with ex-Ghana international, Otto Addo as head coach.

He has three assistants in former Kotoko coach, Mas Ud Didi Dramani, ex-Dutch international, George Boateng and Stephen Appiah who captained Ghana in two FIFA World Cups. The four men are expected to put Ghana’s house in order to book the ticket for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year. However, a member of the Black Stars technical team, Chris Hughton is reported set to reject the offer of becoming the technical advisor. The news has it that the former Brighton and Holve Albion manager was not consulted before the appointments were made and that has not gone down well with him. It remains to be seen if the Irish born with Ghanaian parentage will accept or reject the offer.
