‘Carry out your ideas no matter who tries to come between’ – Otto Addo’s advice to new Black Stars coach


Outgoing Ghana coach Otto Addo has advised anyone who will take over as the new head coach of the Black Stars team after his departure.

Otto Addo left his role as Ghana coach after defeat to Uruguay on Friday evening at the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah at the FIFA Mundial in Qatar.

Ghana needed just a point from the Uruguay clash to progress to the round 16 stages of the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament but failed to score and couldn’t keep a clean sheet as well.

Uruguay beat Ghana but went out of the World Cup on goals scored as they finished third behind South Korea in Group H, despite Luiz Suarez’s heroics.

Suarez played a major role in both of Uruguay’s goals, and the 35-year-old was in tears after the final whistle, following what may have been his last international.

However, he had some advice for the next coach who would come in as his replacement.

“Be himself, fulfil his ideas no matter who tries to come between but he should listen to his coaching staff, take advice and if there is anything I can do to help, I am always there,” he said.

“I will give advice and help my motherland. [He] should not listen to negativity too much, be fearless.”

The scout trainer and development coach of Borussia Dortmund, Otto Addo won four games, drew four games and lost four in his 12 games as Ghana coach.
