Former Ghanaian international Laryea Kingston has praised Chris Hughton’s selection as the Black Stars’ new head coach.
The former Republic of Ireland international has been named the team’s new trainer, according to the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
Chris Hughton, a former head coach of Newcastle United, succeeds Otto Addo, who resigned after his nation’s early withdrawal from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
George Boateng and Didi Dramani will provide the 64-year-old with assistance.
Kingston, who played 41 times for his country and scored six goals, thinks the former Brighton manager is a reliable coach.
Hughton’s expertise will help the Black Stars because he is aware of the current state of football, in his opinion.
“The appointment of Chris Hughton as the new coach of the Black Stars is solid,” he said in an interview with an Accra-based FM station.
“Chris Hughton brings experience and he understands the modern trend of football,” he added.
Prior to being hired, Hughton worked as the Black Stars’ technical adviser.
In the upcoming days, he is anticipated to announce his Black Stars lineup for the AFCON doubleheader against Angola in March 2023.
