Head coach for the Black Stars, Chris Hughton has highlighted reasons his team is not performing at the highest level since the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament which was hosted in Qatar.
According to him, the Stars have been hit hard with injuries since he took over from Otto Addo and thinks the absence of some key players has played a big role in the team’s ineffectiveness.
Nonetheless, the gaffer is confident of improving the team’s performance in the upcoming games in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers against Madagascar and Comoros.
“When Chris Hughton met the Executive Council, he gave reasons why the team has not been performing. He is aware that the team has not been good,” he said in an interview Asempa FM.
“He told the ExCO that after the World Cup in Qatar, he has not been able to get the full complement of the team. Mohammed Salisu, Kofi Kyereh, and other key players have been out due to various degrees of injuries.
“When we play at Kumasi we struggle to win games because of the lack of first-team players in the squad.
“Even in the game against Mexico and the USA, you could see the players that were invited but above all, he has assured the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the ExCO that he will improve the results and get the needed results,” he added.
