AFCON 2023: “I take responsibility” – Chris Hughton stops short of resigning after embarrassing Mozambique draw
Black Stars head coach, Chris Hughton, has claimed responsibility for Ghana’s last minute collapse against Mozambique which has left the Black Stars staring at another group stage exit at the Africa Cup of Nations.
The Stars gave away a two-goal lead in the space of six minutes to draw 2-2 with Mozambique in their last Group B game at the Olympic Stadium in Abidjan on Monday night.
The result has left the stars in 3rd position in the group, with only 2 points, and now desperately need a miracle to qualify as one of the four 3rd place teams.
Speaking at the post game press conference, Hughton said,”I take responsibility for this performance and admit my results with the Black Stars have not been good enough.”
But he stopped short of resigning from his position.
Perhaps the reason he did not quit immediately is because there’s the slim chance the Black Stars could slip through to the next round if other results go their way.
Currently ranked 5th among the 3rd place teams, Ghana can only qualify if Zambia, Algeria, Cameroon all lose their last group games.
Cameroon face Gambia, Algeria face Mauritania and Zambia face DR Congo.
