"Otto Addo contributed massive to the Black Stars" - GFA Gen. Sec
General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Prosper Harrison Addo believes Otto Addo was never a bad coach for the Ghana national team.
The Borussia Dortmund talent coach led Ghana to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar but had a poor campaign after beating only South Korea in Group H. His performance by many, was shambolic and didn’t deserve to be handed the Black Stars at the first place.
Otto succeeded Serbian trainer Milovan Rejevac after another shambolic performance at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameron.
Despite the criticism and scrutiny faced by Addo during his tenure, the General Secretary remains strong that Addo was a top-notch gaffer and contributed better and even possess the qualities of a competent coach.
In an interview with Asempa FM the General Secretary stated, ” I can confidently say that no one can convince me he was a bad coach for Ghana. He brought in fresh ideas, tactical acumen, and a deep understanding of the game.
“You can ask everybody on the national team including the players, and they will tell you Otto Addo was top notch” he added
“Coaching is a challenging job, and it is essential to consider the broader picture. Otto Addo’s impact extended beyond mere results. He played a crucial role in player development, fostering a positive team culture, and instilling a sense of national pride among the squad.”
