Otto Addo resigns as #BlackStars Head Coach. Chris Hughton set to take over?


Ghana Black Stars coach has stepped down from his role as the head coach of the Black Star after failing to secure a place in the round 16 of the world cup happening in Qatar.

Speaking at the post match press conference after his team's 0-2 defeat to Uruguay, Otto Addo who has become the first Ghanaian to participate in the world cup as both a player and a coach confirmed his decision to step down as the head coach of the Ghana team who was the youngest team at the competition, stating he had only one job , which was to qualify the Ghana team to the world cup and coaching the team in the tournament .

"I said before, when I started as an assistant coach... it was clear to me that I will stop after the world and at the moment I have a job in Germany and I like my  role at Borussia Dortmund, I am very very happy there and so from the first time we said when we qualify to the world cup i will not continue even if we are world champions . This is my decision" 

With a win rate of 33.% , Otto Addo's team managed a win and two defeats at the World Cup. Former Brighton and Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton who is the current technical adviser of this Black Stars team is set to takeover as the  Head Coach going into the AFCON qualifiers.
