Ex-Kotoko coach wants Chris Hughton maintained as Black Stars gaffer

Ex-Kotoko coach wants Chris Hughton maintained as Black Stars gaffer

Former Asante Kotoko coach, Isaac Opeele Boateng has called on the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to maintain Chris Hughton as the head coach of the Black Stars.

The former Newcastle United manager has been heavily criticized following the Black Stars shambolic performance against Mexico and the United States of America in international friendly matches during the just ended October break.

Ghana’s abysmal showdown during the October international break has sparked a debate in the media as to whether Chris Hughton should be sacked or maintained as the Black Stars gaffer.

But Opeele Boateng in a tweet believes the Kurt Okraku-led GFA should maintain the 63-year old as the Black Stars coach, emphasizing that Hughton was the media’s preferred choice for the position, and that the media should bear the responsibility for any decisions concerning the manager’s future.

“GFA and Kurt [Okraku] must not sack Chris Hughton. Let it spoil. The All Known PERFECT MEDIA COACH. I keep reminding the GFA that Hughton is UNTOUCHABLE! He is their choice; the media can sack Hughton themselves” he tweeted.

Chris Hughton was appointed the head coach of the Black Stars in February, 2023 following the resignation of Otto Addo after a poor showing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Before his appointment, the former Brighton and Hove Albion manager was serving as the Black Stars technical director under the tutelage of coach Otto Addo.

And since taking over the mantle as the Black Stars gaffer, Chris Hughton has overseen three wins, two losses, and two draws.
