Ghana’s Black Stars technical advisor Chris Hughton has revealed how he feels about the current Ghana squad going into the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament.
He also stated his outmost trust in the technical team as we get nearer to the FIFA Mundial next month.
According to the former Brighton and Hove Albion coach, he has confidence in the team and the technical team heading to the tournament.
“There’s no doubt that played a part,” Hughton told Daily Mail. “I do feel a strong connection to the country. So, when they asked if I was prepared to help, using my experience and knowledge, the answer was always going to be yes,” he added.
The Black Stars are preparing ahead of the tournament in Qatar next month and Hughton is confident of the team’s chances.
“It is difficult in a way,” he said. “I’m confident in the squad and the coaching staff, but part of my role should be to be realistic. Not to dampen expectations, but to speak honestly.
