The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced the appointment of former Brighton and Hove Albion manager as the new head coach of the senior national team of Ghana.

The statement from the Ghana FA reads “The Ghana Football Association has the pleasure to appoint Chris Hughton as Head Coach of the Black Stars following extensive deliberations between the two parties.”
“The appointment is in line with the vision of the GFA to continue with the project of building a formidable squad that started with Otto Addo in the lead up to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 tournament.”
