Ex-Ghana international, Nii Odartey Lamptey believe Ghana’s new head coach Chris Hughton would do a good job for the West African Country after naming him a successor of Otto Addo few days ago.

Hughton, 64, was the technical advisor to the Black Stars team during 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and has eventually secured the role of head coach without time limit.

However, former Black Stars player Odartey Lamptey has thrown his support to Chris Hughton and strongly believe he can not be manipulated as already circulated.

The former Newcastle United gaffer’s appointment has received a lot of reaction by former Ghanaian footballers who have poured their opinions on his position.

Ghana’s coaching job was vacant after the World Cup when Acting Head Coach Otto Addo left the job to concentrate on his work at Dortmund.

Nii Odartey Lamptet believes Chris Hughton is the man for the job based on his aura and clouts he comes along with and that he would be difficult to manipulate in terms of decision making in the team.

“With his experience and pedigree, I think it will be difficult for someone to influence the job of Chris Hughton.” He told Asempa FM.

Chris Hughton will be in charge of the Black Stars for the first time in March when Ghana takes on Angola in a double-headers encounter for the AFCON 2023 Quality in Cape Coast and Luanda.
