Chris Hughton, Ghana’s coach, firmly insisted that he is the right person for the Ghana national team, the Black Stars.
The statement was made after the USA’s blowout victory, which prompted Chris Hughton to claim that he is ideal candidate for the Ghana coaching job.
Hughton assumed the role of head trainer following Addo’s resignation due to Ghana’s premature exit from the 2022 World Cup in Qata after previously serving as a technical advisor under Otto Addo.
The former Brighton manager who signed a 21-month deal in March earlier this year had a good start as the head coach of the Black Stars.
Despite initial challenges, the 64-year-old successfully steered the team to secure a place in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), which is scheduled to take place in Ivory Coast next year.
As part of their preparations for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers and AFCON, Ghana engaged in international friendly matches against Mexico and the USA.
In the first game, Ghana suffered a 2-0 defeat against the CONCACAF champions at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
In the final match against the US Men’s national team at the Geodis Stadium in Nashville, the four-time African champions endured a substantial 4-0 loss.
During a post-match conference, Hughton confidently expressed his belief that he is the right person for the coaching role, stating, “If you ask me if I feel like I’m the right person for this job, the answer is yes.”
The Black Stars will now redirect their focus to the World Cup qualifiers scheduled for November.
Ghana’s qualifying matches kick off with encounters against Madagascar on November 13 and Comoros on November 21, followed by the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast next year.
