Ghanaian football legend, Mohammed Polo has urged the Ghana Football Association to maintain Chris Hughton as head coach of the Black Stars for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.
Chris Hughton’s future is in doubt following a crunch meeting between the football governing body and the government officials.
The former Newcastle boss has suffered a backlash from Ghanaians following the team’s back-to-back defeats against Mexico and USA two weeks ago.
Despite the team’s poor run, the “Dribbling Magician” has advised the FA not to part ways with the gaffer.
“This is not the time to sack Chris Hughton though his performance is not encouraging but let’s give him the chance to lead us to the AFCON. The FA can take that decision after the AFCON but it is not good for the players as they prepare for the tournament. Sacking the coach will affect the team,” Mohammed Polo told Accra-based Mothers FM.
WHAT NEXT FOR THE BLACK STARS?
Chris Hughton and his boys will host Madagascar in Ghana on November 17 before travelling to face Comoros on November 21 in the first two games in Group I of the World Cup qualifiers.
