Ghana Football Association President Kurt Okraku has defended the choice to reinstate Otto Addo as the forthcoming coach of the Black Stars, citing his exceptional performance during the interview process. The Borussia Dortmund talent coach was officially appointed on Friday, succeeding Chris Hughton. Okraku stated that the search committee for the Black Stars coach was impressed by Addo’s vision, which led them to conclude that he was the ideal candidate for the position.

“Otto was exceptional in the interview process and was rated highly by the search committee, hence the decision,” President Simeon-Okraku told

“There were some brilliant individuals among the coaches who applied for the job, so the committee took the pain to interview a chunk of them to pick their thoughts on their intentions to transform the team within a short period of time due to our peculiar situation”

“The Committee was overly satisfied with Otto’s performance for which reason he was recommended to the Executive Council for approval,” President Simeon-Okraku added.

The chairman of the committee, Mark Addo, previously stated that there were more than 500 applicants expected to meet certain criteria, including a minimum of 15 years of coaching experience and a demonstrable history of success. Although Addo may not fully meet these requirements, the GFA believes in his capability to propel Ghana’s Black Stars to new heights.

Otto Addo’s initial competitive task will be against Mali on June 3, 2024, in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, followed by a match against the Central African Republic seven days later in Ghana.
