Black Stars coach search: Otto Addo beats them all during interview – Reports



Borussia Dortmund trainer Otto Addo is reportedly close to a return as Black Stars head coach after impressing during the interview process.

A report filed by Nhyira FM indicates that the German-born Ghanaian coach had the highest score among all coaches who were interviewed for the vacant role.

The Black Stars head coach role has been vacant since the dismissal of Chris Hughton, who led the team to the 2023 AFCON.

Hughton’s sacking was on the back of a terrible performance at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, where he failed to lead Ghana to win a game and exited at the group stage with two points.

The GFA reportedly received over 500 applications for the vacant role and is looking to appoint one to become the new manager.
