Isaac ‘Opeele’ Boateng Calls for Nora Hauptle as First Female Coach for Black Stars

Former Asante Kotoko coach, Isaac ‘Opeele’ Boateng, has advocated for the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to consider appointing Black Queens coach Nora Hauptle as the next manager for the Black Stars.

Boateng urged the GFA to adopt a forward-thinking approach, suggesting that Ghana could become the first country to appoint a female coach for their senior men’s team.

Expressing his full confidence in Hauptle’s abilities, Boateng tweeted that she would be an excellent choice for the Black Stars job.

He expressed his sentiments in a tweet, stating, “Sometimes, I wish Ghana could live in the future to be the first to appoint a woman as their senior national team coach.

The first to gain independence in Southern Sahara can be the first to do this. Nora can coach the Black Stars, trust me. Unthinkable Right?”

The Black Stars coaching position has been vacant since Chris Hughton’s dismissal after the 2023 . The GFA recently announced that the Black Stars coach search committee has completed its report following the recruitment process.

Nora Hauptle has garnered praise from Ghanaians for her accomplishments with the Black Queens. Since assuming the role in January 2023, she has led them to qualify for THE WAFCON for the first time since 2018.

During her tenure, the team has achieved an impressive record of 10 wins out of 13 games, with two draws and one loss. The revitalized Black Queens have scored 37 goals and conceded just six.

However, Nora Hauptle’s aspirations faced a setback when the Black Queens narrowly missed out on qualifying for the 2024 Olympic Games after a 4-3 aggregate loss to Zambia.

Despite this setback, her success with the Black Queens has solidified her reputation as a capable and accomplished coach, earning her consideration for the prestigious role with the Black Stars.
