Former Communications Director of the GFA, Ibrahim Saanie Daara has stated that Otto Addo was the most suitable for the Black Stars head coaching job after a disastrous AFCON 2021 campaign.
Addo was tasked to lead the team after they crashed out of the group stages in AFCON 2021. He rewarded GFA’s faith with a place in the 2022 World Cup where he will remain at the helm until the competition is concluded.
“In 2006, Otto Addo was a player; he started his scouting in 2010 and was Ghana’s chief scout for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Throughout the tournament, the best game between Ghana and Germany was scouted by Coach Otto Addo.
“Going into our game against Nigeria we all were not confident we could win but Otto Addo was able to qualify us. Looking at the time frame we cannot go in for a new coach going into the World Cup”, Sannie Daara said on the Happy Sports Dialogue.
Otto Addo’s Ghana will face Uruguay, Portugal and South Korea in Group H.
