GFA comfortable with Otto Addo handling two coaching roles with Ghana & Dortmund

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has disclosed that they are ‘okay’ with Otto Addo handling two coaching roles with the Black Stars and Borussia Dortmund.

GFA believes the dual roles will not get in the way of adequately preparing the Black Stars for the upcoming 2023  Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Otto Addo confirmed last week that Dortmund have given him the permission to coach Ghana during the World Cup in Qatar at the end of the year as well as handle Ghana’s AFCON qualifiers which would commence with a home match against Madagascar on June 1.

The Association is closing in on appointing the 46-year-old as permanent Ghana coach as well as other members of the Black Stars technical team.

The Otto Addo-led team qualified the Black Stars to the global showpiece following a 1-1 draw against Nigeria in the final play-offs of the World Cup at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja in March.

The Technical team was made up of Aston Villa U-19 coach George Boateng and Mas-ud Didi Dramani of Nordsjaelland with Chris Hughton serving as Technical Advisor.

Otto Addo became first Ghanaian to have represented Ghana at the World Cup and also qualified the team to the Mundial as a coach.

Ghana have been placed in Group H together with Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea for the World Cup which is scheduled for November 21 to December 18 in Qatar.
