Kojo Bonsu charges GFA to appoint Chris Hughton as Otto Addo successor

Former mayor of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), Kojo Bonsu has urged the Ghana Football Association to appoint Chris Hughton as new Black Stars head coach.

Otto Addo, who is talent coach at Borussia Dortmund worked for Ghana in an interim capacity and will vacate his post at the end of December when his six-month contract comes to an end.

The 47-year-old led qualified the Black Stars to the 2022 World Cup but exited at the group stage following two defeats and one win to finish at the bottom of Group H with three points.

“I’m in for either a local or expatriate, but also, a coach who is well committed to the team, and let’s pay him well. We like cheap labour and we need to avoid those stuff and allow the coach to make his own selections of players,” Kojo Bonsu told Akoma FM.

“I will personally go in for Chris Hughton ahead of the current coaches we have if only the man is willing to do the job.”

He added, “We have numerous players that are very good and with a great coach, the team will go further. We should scout for a better coach and allow him to appoint his own assistant coaches.”
