Chris Hughton, the new coach of the Ghana national team, has vowed to put an end to interference in player selection for the Black Stars. Hughton made the comments during his official introduction as head coach in Kumasi.
There have been accusations that officials at the Ghana Football Association (GFA) have influenced the selection of players for the national team in the past.
The poor performance of the Black Stars at major tournaments has been attributed to such interference.
However, Hughton, a former manager of Brighton and Newcastle United, said he cannot speak to what happened in the past but assured fans and the media that he will be in control of the team and that there will be no interference under his tenure.
“I cannot speak to what happened in the past. As the head coach now, I know interference will be a thing of the past,” he said during his unveiling on Monday.
