Hughton breaks silence on Black Stars coaching role

Chris Hughton has spoken for the first time regarding his role with the national team of Ghana confirming he is taking charge as the Technical Advisor for the two crucial 2022 World Cup playoff matches against Nigeria.

The former Newcastle and Brighton manager confirmed his role in the two-legged matches next month despite claims from a section of the Ghanaian media that he was not keen on the role.

The Technical advisor to the newly formed technical staff of the Black Stars rubbished the claims that he was not keen on the role, revealing he will join the Black Stars new coaching staff for the matches.

Hughton was appointed as Technical Advisor to the newly constituted Black Stars Technical team led by Otto Addo.

Other members of the new Technical team include George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani.

The 63- year old will provide Technical advice to the three man team for next month’s FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 play-off match against Nigeria

The former Brighton and Holve Albion manager has spoken about his new Ghana role for the first time.

“Yes, and I have a lot of energy. I am going to be involved with Ghana," Hughton said when asked about his involvement with the Black Stars.

“My father hailed from Ghana and Ghana has two World Cup play-off games against Nigeria. I am involved in that.

“There is a coach but I have the title of technical advisor and my role will be to support the coach and the staff for these two games.

“But I am very much looking to get back and have a lot to offer.”

Ghana will face Nigeria in the two matches for a sole ticket for the tournament in Qatar late next month.

The Black Stars will take on the Super Eagles in Cape Coast before travelling to Abuja for the return clash.
