The Irish trainer is among a number of coaches listed as possible candidates to take over the managerial job following the sacking of Milovan Rajevac on Wednesday, January 26.

 

Hughton, 63, is of Ghanaian heritage through his father and is expected to have a meeting with the executive council of the Ghana Football Association during his time in the country.

 

A high ranking member of the government is pushing for the appointment of the former Norwich City manager as the next head coach of the senior national team.

The 63year old who was born to Ghanaian postman Willie Hughton, speaks the Ga dialect fluently. He has previously coached Tottenham Hotspurs, Newcastle United, Norwich City, and Brighton and Hove Albion in England’s Premier League. He has also served as assistant coach of Northern Ireland, a position he held from 2003 to 2005. If hired, Hughton may be the key to luring Tariq Lamptey, Callu, Hudson-Odoi and other European based players of Ghanaian descent, who are yet to commit to the Black Stars.

 

 

Meanwhile, the GFA’s executive council have a different option for the job.

 

Rajevac was relieved of his duties as the head coach following Ghana’s disastrous performance in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon.

Borussia Dortmund assistant coach Otto Addo, Aston Villa youth coach George Boateng and former Cameroon assistant coach Ibrahim Tanko are said to be part of a number of coaches being considered for the vacant job.
