Didi Dramani, the assistant coach of Ghana’s national football team, has provided insight into the qualities that new coach Chris Hughton will bring to the Black Stars.
Hughton, a former manager of Brighton, was appointed last month to replace Otto Addo, who stepped down after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. He will work with Dramani and George Boateng, who also served under Addo.
Dramani praised Hughton as a unifier who values the opinions of others and brings continuity and progress to the team. He noted that Hughton’s coaching philosophy is unique, but highlighted the manager’s ability to bring people together as a key strength.
“No matter what I talk about his philosophy, it has nothing to do with peoples thought. What I will talk about Chris is that, he is a unifier, brings people together and his openness of other peoples’ view is huge and this alone is of the type of manager he is. He still brings about continuity and advancement of the team” he said.
Hughton and his assistant coaches will be unveiled on March 20, ahead of the team’s upcoming AFCON qualifier against Angola.
Ghana is currently leading Group E of the qualifiers with four points, tied with Angola, followed by Central African Republic and Madagascar. The Black Stars will face Angola at Baba Yara Stadium on March 23, before playing the reverse fixture in Luanda on March 27.
