Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu says Otto Addo is unfit for the Black Stars job, insisting that Chris Hughton is the right man for the job.
The Black Stars head coach role became vacant after the GFA sacked Milovan Rajevac following Ghana’s worst-ever performance at the Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] in Cameroon.
Kurt Okraku, who is the president of the Ghana Football Association [GFA] together with some officials are in Germany to hold talks with Otto Addo for the vacant role.
According to Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, Otto Addo is just an assistant coach of Borussia Dortmund and cannot be the right man for the Black Star.
“Chris Hughton is a coach who knows how to build with average materials, and that’s Ghana’s situation now. Our materials are not good, so we need Chris to weld. Otto Addo is just a second coach for Dortmund,” he said in an interview on Angel FM.
According to reports, Otto Addo is the choice of the Ghana Football Association while the government through the Ministry of Youth and Sports is pushing for Christ Hughton, who is on holiday in Ghana to become the next Black Stars coach.
Otto Addo, who is a former Ghana international was part of Milovan Rajevac’s technical team as the assistant first-team coach.
Black Stars face Nigeria in late March for a place in the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be staged in Qatar later this year.
