DONE DEAL! Otto Addo agrees to lead Ghana to the World Cup in Qatar


Otto Addo is said to have agreed to a one-year contract with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to coach the Black Stars at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

After guiding the Black Stars to the tournament at the expense of Nigeria, the former Ghana international recently returned to Dortmund as a trainer scout.

Earlier this week, GFA communications director, Henry Asante Twum, has stated that the GFA will soon announce the appointment of a substantive coach for the Black Stars.

The senior national team currently does not have a coach.

The Otto Addo-led technical team that oversaw Ghana's qualification for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022 was disbanded immediately following the two-legged tie against Nigeria.

Coach Addo and his assistants were hired solely to manage the team during the playoffs.

“I do not think it will take much time. They are in communication with the individuals concerned, having regular discussions with their employers, and many factors are being considered. But, again, the government of Ghana is the employer of the coach of the Black Stars and here is the case where we had four coaches qualifying us for the World Cup.

“In terms of contractual engagement, a lot will go into it, so it’s tough to discuss these things. So, engagements are still ongoing, and I’m sure we will communicate our position as soon as a decision is made,” Twum said on Luv FM.

Addo took over as Ghana coach after Milovan Rajevac failed to advance to the last 16 of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, finishing bottom of their group.

Ghana have been assigned to Group H, along with Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea, for the World Cup, which will be held in Qatar from November 21 to December 18.
