Former Vice President of the Ghana Football Association, George Afriyie says it is good to maintain George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi as assistant coaches for the Black Stars of Ghana.
George Boateng and Didi Dramani have been maintained as assistant coaches for the four-time African champions following the appointment of Chris Hughton as the substantive head coach of the national team.
The two deputy coaches were appointed as the assistant coaches for the Ghana national team ahead of the World Cup playoff against Nigeria in February 2022 when Otto Addo was named as the interim boss.
They continued to guide the team in their respective roles during the World Cup in Qatar with ex-coach, Otto Addo.
However, George Afriyie insists the retainment of George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani is a good decision made by the football governing body for stability reasons.
“The GFA’s decision to retain George Boateng and Mas-Ud Dramani as his assistants is also a good decision by the GFA for stability reasons. He was with them during the qualifiers and the World Cup so it helps with continuity. Even if he [Chris] wants to do an addition to the technical team, the GFA should allow him,” he told Ghana Sports Online.
