Stick to Otto Addo, others – Nana Addo tells GFA

President Akufo-Addo has asked officials of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to make sure the current technical team of the Black Stars led by coach Otto Addo are kept as the team prepares to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. 

The President believes the current technical team has what it takes to make the Black Stars shine in Qatar based on what has been achieved in their last two matches.

The President made the appeal during a courtesy call by the team at the Jubilee House on Wednesday afternoon.

“I’m hoping that the technical team that has been put together for these two matches will at least take us through the World Cup itself. Mr Okraku, [do] whatever you can do to make sure the team stays together, at least until Qatar, then afterwards, we can take a long-tern decision” he said.

Meanwhile, Head of Communications of the Ghana Football Association, Henry Twum Asante, says the association will not immediately extend the contracts of the individual technical team members of the Black Stars to be in charge of the team until the end of the 2022 World Cup.

He said although their performance in the last two World Cup qualifier games was impressive, due process will still be followed to attempt to get them to stay on the job for the next couple of months.

“The decision of 10th February 2022 was to put the four coaches in an interim capacity, after which their performance will be reviewed and a proper decision about the forward march of a technical direction will now be discussed. So as we speak, their job is done,” he said on the Point of View program on Citi TV.

Ghana are in Pot 4 for the World Cup Draw which will be held on Friday, April 1st.
