Chris Hughton has been named the next Black Stars head coach, according to the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
According to the information shared by sports journalist, Saddick Adams, Mas-Ud Didi Dramani and George Boateng will be Hughton’s assistants.
During the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the former Republic of Ireland international worked as Otto Addo’s technical advisor. He has now taken over as head coach in lieu of Addo.
In Hughton’s coaching career, he has had positions at various levels, including managing under several managers at Tottenham, where he coupled his position with acting as an assistant coach for the Republic of Ireland.
He was appointed as Newcastle United’s first-team coach by Kevin Keegan in 2008. He was appointed interim manager in September of that year, when Keegan left.
After Newcastle was demoted to the Championship, he was later named the club’s permanent manager, and under his leadership, they were immediately promoted back to the Premier League.
Hughton’s management career has been outstanding thus far, and he has since led Birmingham City, Norwich City, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Nottingham Forest.
And one of his greatest accomplishments was leading Newcastle to Premier League promotion. He took Birmingham City to the Europa League group stages and Norwich City to an 11th-place Premier League finish with his previous club.
His new contract details with the Ghana Football Association will be out soon.
