The search for a new Black Stars coach continues, and according to Ghana Football Association communications director Henry Asante Twum, the association has received numerous applications, with European coaches dominating.
The position became vacant on December 2, 2022, the same day Ghana played their final 2022 World Cup game in Qatar. Otto Addo resigned following the 2-0 defeat to Uruguay, which confirmed the Black Stars’ elimination from the tournament.
“Maybe over 60 applications. The Black Stars is very attractive. You cannot have Mohammed Kudus in your team and think the Black Stars are not attractive. It is an attractive brand, no doubt about that,” said Twum on Asempa FM.
“I’m never surprised that coaches are constantly applying. Most of them are from European countries and some too from South America.”
Former Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah expressed interest in the position last week but has yet to apply.
“So far, no Ghanaian coach has applied for the Black Stars job,” Twum disclosed.
Meanwhile, former Brighton coach Chris Hughton, a member of Otto Addo’s backroom staff, is said to be close to landing the job.
According to reports, the GFA plans to name the new coach before the end of January.
