Newly-appointed head coach of the Black Stars, Chris Hughton has joined a tall list of coaches to have coached Ghana’s senior men’s team in the past.
The Ghana Football Association announced the appointment of Chris Hughton as the new head coach of the Black Stars on Sunday, February 12, 2023.
The Black Stars’ coaching job became vacant following the resignation of coach Otto Addo in December 2022 after the Black Stars exited the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Chris Hughton who was formerly the Technical Advisor of the Black Stars would be assisted by Mas-ud Didi Dramani and George Boateng who have been maintained.
The new Black Stars coach becomes the 29th coach in history to have been appointed and also the 11th Ghanaian to take charge of the team.
Out of the tall list of coaches, only two have won the AFCON with the Black Stars.
Legendary coach CK Gyamfi won the AFCON three times with Ghana in 1963, 1965 and 1982 whiles Fred Osman Doudu won the title with Ghana in 1978.
