Former Ghana goalkeeper William Amamoo has added his voice to the appointment of Chris Hughton as the Black Stars’ head coach.
The Ghana Football Association somewhere last week confirmed the appointment of Chris Hughton to take charge of the Black Stars.
The 64-year-old has been working as a technical adviser for the Black Stars since February 2022.
He replaces Otto Addo, who stepped down following the World Cup in Qatar, where Ghana finished bottom of Group H with one win from three matches.
According to former Black goalkeeper William Amamoo, the appointment of Chris is good for the progress of Ghana football.
“I think it’s a step in the right direction looking at the experience Chris comes with. He has understudied the team so well having worked as a technical adviser to the team during the World and that will serve as his guide to controlling the affairs of the team well” he told Nimdeɛ Fm in Sunyani.
George Boateng and Didi Dramani maintained their posts he assistants to the head coach. Both coaches worked as assistants to Otto Addo during the World Cup.
“Maintaining George Boateng and Dramani as assistants is probably because Chris feels comfortable working and having them around the table. Every coach wants assistants they trust and I think Chris has experienced that with them,” he added
It is Hughton’s first managerial role since he was sacked by Nottingham Forest in September 2021.
He also previously managed Newcastle, Birmingham, and Norwich before his five-year spell at Brighton, which he led to promotion from the Championship.
