Black Stars Coach; GFA To Name Otto Addo or Chris Houghton?

After the shambolic performance at the African Cup of Nations, the Black Stars technical team which was headed by coach Milovan Rajevac was dissolved. The entire team came under intense criticism for obvious reasons; failure is an orphan. Many were justified in scolding the team because they had received somewhat good support to be able to at least qualify from the group stage. Yet, Ghana couldn’t even beat Comoros.

The vacant coaching role needed to be filled for the world cup playoffs against the Super Eagles of Nigeria. Due to the abysmal performance at the African Cup of Nations, not many people expected Ghana to do so well at the world cup playoff yet they defied all odds and qualified at the expense of Nigeria in Abuja.

The four-member technical team which included: Chris Houghton (Technical Advisor) Otto Addo (Head coach), George Boateng (Assistant Coach) and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani (Assistant coach) did an incredible job. Coach Otto Addo received a lot of praise after that stellar performance and many think he should lead the team to the world cup in Qatar. At the moment, Otto is working as an assistant coach with Borussia Dortmund. Will he take a full time job as the Black Stars coach? I’m sure it is something he has been thinking about.

Chris Houghton is considered as an experienced coach, having trained a lot of players in the English Premiership. He has coached Newcastle United, Norwich City and Brighton & Hove Albion. Currently, he has no job and it seems he will also be a good fit for the role.

Ghanaians are anxiously waiting for the news for the person who takes over the role as a substantive coach. Whether it is Chris or Otto, I think Ghanaians have come to love all of them and will be happy with any of them. They may even be happier when they work together like they did in the world cup playoffs. Let me know your thoughts on who becomes the next coach.
