Former vice president of the Ghana Football Association George Afriyie has backed Chris Hughton to succeed with the Black Stars despite recent failures under other coaches.
The seasoned football official stated in an interview with 3 Sports that he is certain the next Ghana head coach would be successful although acknowledged that no coach’s success is guaranteed.
“For me, I have enough confidence in Chris Hughton. Yes, coaches can come and fail but let us do our part, appoint the right personnel and say we did our best. I have confidence in the coach,” George Afriyie said.
Hughton’s appointment as the new head coach of the national side was officially approved by the Ghana FA in February.
In the upcoming round of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, which pits Ghana against Angola, the gaffer will oversee his first official game.
The 64-year-old will be introduced at a ceremony in Kumasi on Monday, March 20, prior to the match against Angola.
