Dortmund bids farewell to Otto Addo as he takes helm of Ghana’s Black Stars


Borussia Dortmund bid a heartfelt farewell to Ghana coach Otto Addo as he departs the club to focus solely on his role with the Black Stars.

Addo, a former Ghana international, has decided to conclude his nearly eight-year tenure with the German giants, where he served as the player development coach. During his time at Dortmund, he was instrumental in the development of several top players, including Erling Haaland of Manchester City and Jude Bellingham of Real Madrid.

While at Dortmund, Addo managed to balance his duties with his role as a coach for the Black Stars, leading Ghana to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. In February, however, the 48-year-old accepted the position of full-time head coach for the Black Stars after the dismissal of Chris Hughton.

Recently, Addo led the Black Stars in friendlies against Nigeria and Uganda in March, where Ghana faced a loss to the Super Eagles and a draw with the Cranes.

The former FC Nordsjaelland coach is set to arrive in Ghana this week for his official unveiling. During this event, he will address the press and announce his squad for the upcoming 2026 World Cup qualifiers against Mali and the Central African Republic in June.
