Ghana’s Black Stars head coach Chris Hughton says his predecessor, Otto Addo is a very good coach despite his shambolic output.
The Ghana senior national team gaffer believes the Borussia Dortmund development and talent trainer is a top notch tactician.
peaking about how he landed the Ghana coaching job, Hughton praised Addo, describing him as a good coach and also revealed how he got the nod to be the head coach of the Black Stars.
“It actually started when I was there on holiday. My father passed away about four or five months ago but fortunately, he was still alive when I was given the role as head coach. And very proud to do so,” he told talkSPORT.
“We hadn’t done so well in AFCON. They changed the coach and wanted to bring in another coach, Otto Addo, who’s one of the assistants at Dortmund, a very good coach.”
Hughton added: “So I was here on holidays and most people thought I was there for the job but it wasn’t the case. But it worked out that they asked me because I wasn’t working and you know my father was from Ghana, whether I’d be a technical advisor and there were two big qualification games coming up against Nigeria, which we won. Post-World Cup, they asked me if I’d like to be head coach which I didn’t take long to accept.”
Hughton remains unbeaten in his first three games in charge of Ghana, having won one and drawn the other two.
