I have a good backroom staff – Ghana coach Chris Hughton
Chris Hughton, Ghana manager despite early days assuming role as Black Stars coach has hailed his backroom staff.
The English-born Ghanaian took over the coaching job after Otto Addo abandoned it having led the side to Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup. He was offered a one-and-a-half year contract by the Ghana Football Association in March.
After 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers double-header against Angola, amassing four points Chris Hughton says he has competent backroom staff. He is currently working Masawudu Dramani and George Boateng as his two deputies.
Former Black Stars goalie Richard Kingson is acting as the goalkeeper’s trainer for the team.
Speaking to SuperSport, the former Brighton and Newcastle United coach who worked as a technical advisor before his appointment as head coach of the national team lauded his backroom staff.
“I have a good backroom staff because if you have a good backroom staff, it makes your work far easier but you would need to have the right people around. People you value and you can trust and I believe that is what I have got,” he said.
He also added that he has a good relationship with the Ghana Football Association.
“My dealings with the Ghana Football Association have been good, very open and honest and they have assured me of the support,” he added.
