Former Germany international Gerald Asamoah has urged the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to stick to Chris Hughton as Black Stars head coach for a longer period.
Following Ghana’s 1-0 loss to Comoros in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, doubts and concerns have been raised over Hughton’srole. The defeat was the gaffer’s first in six competitive games.
Hughton was under pressure prior to the start of the qualifiers after the Black Stars’ losses against Mexico and the United States in October, and he was expected to be fired.
However, that decision was later reversed, with Hughton keeping his job.
Despite the clamour for change, Asamoah, who played for Germany, has emerged as a voice and suggested patience for Hughton.
“What we need is continuity. Somebody who will be there for long to say we have a project for five years and this is the coach we are going with,” he told Joy Sports.
“[In here] Otto Addo came and he didn’t stay even for a year then Chris came.”
“[We need to identify] a coach and say ‘we have a project with you. In five years we want to be there.’ So then, you need to believe the coach and work with the coach,” he added.
“This is what I can say to the members [of the GFA]. It will be a good idea to keep the coach for long.”
