The 64-year-old has served as the technical advisor of the Ghana national team since last year for the 2022 World Cup playoffs and the main tournament in Qatar.
He is, therefore, coming into a familiar territory, where expectations are very high after the disappointing performance at the Mundial in November and December.
Chris Hughton is expected to be confirmed as the new head coach of the Ghana national team after serving as a technical advisor for the 2022 World Cup playoffs and the tournament itself in Qatar.
His announcement as the new Black Stars head coach is awaiting government clearance.
Meanwhile, George Boateng and Didi Dramani are expected to be maintained as his assistants. The two were also assistants during Otto Addo’s tenure as the Ghana boss.
Ghana has been without a head coach since Otto Addo stepped aside after Ghana exited the 2022 World Cup at the group stage.
The Black Stars will be playing Angola in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying doublehead games.
