Even Jose Mourinho won't be able to solve the Black Stars problems - Robert Sackey

Former Black Princesses coach, Robert Sackey has said with the 2023 AFCON fast approaching, it will be prudent for the Ghana Football Association to maintain Chris Hughton as the Black Stars head coach.

This comes following several calls for the sacking of Chris Hughton as Black Stars tactician by some section of Ghanaians after Ghana was beaten by Comoros in the second game of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Moroni.

But according to Robert Sackey, even if the Ghana Football Association sack Chris Hughton and appoint Jose Mourinho for the 2023 AFCON in Ivory Coast, the Black Stars will still underperform.

Sackey explained that the current state of the Black Stars presents a challenge for any coach who will takeover, and it will be reasonable enough to maintain Chris Hughton for the AFCON in January.

Speaking in an interview on Asempa FM, coach Robert Sackey indicated that time left for the commencement of the 2023 AFCON is limited, hence the need for the Ghana Football Association to keep Chris Hughton as the Black Stars gaffer.

“It’s about psyching. How to be able to motivate the players to go and perform,” Sackey explained. “I feel we should keep the coach because it is too late to sack him.” He went on to say, “If we sack him and even bring Jose Mourinho, he cannot be able to perform because it is not easy.”
