Former Ghanaian international Nii Odartey Lamptey thinks Chris Hughton, the new Black Stars coach, has been given a superb chance to right the wrongs in the senior national team.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has elevated Chris Hughton, who served as Otto Addo’s technical adviser with the Black Stars, to the position of senior coach.
Nii Odartey Lamptey commented on the appointment and said Chris Hughton had been with the Black Stars for a few months and had heard all the “misconceptions” about the group.
“Chris Hughton was part of the Black Stars technical team at the World Cup in Qatar so I am tempted to believe with what the media reports, he might have read all and heard it.”
“If Chris Hughton wants to change our system, this is the right time for him to do it. Having served as the technical advisor, he might have seen so many things. Now he has been awarded the head coach role so I am expecting him to correct those wrongs,” he said in an interview with Accra-based FM station.
Nii Odartey Lamptey thinks it will be challenging for anyone in the Ghana Football Association hierarchy to impose his desires on Chris Hughton.
“With his experience and pedigree, I think it will be difficult for someone to influence the job of Chris Hughton.”
