Ghana’s Sports Minister, Mustapha Ussif, has hinted a new Black Stars head coach is close to being appointed by the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
According to him, the Ghana FA is expected to present a final report to his ministry on who they have decided to hand the role.
The role has been vacant following the resignation of Otto Addo after the Black Stars’ 2022 World Cup campaign in Qatar, which saw them exit in the group stage.
The former Black Stars midfielder quit the job to return to German where he is continuing his role with Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund.
Speaking before the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament on Tuesday, Ussif said the GFA will submit a report by next on the next appointment.
“The Ghana Football Association is in the process of hiring a new coach and I have personally engaged them and they have indicated that a final report will be submitted to the Ministry possibly this week or next week,” he said.
“I know we have an assignment in March this year and we need to have a new head coach, so he can start preparing for the AFCON qualifiers.
“The country should be assured that the GFA is working to ensure that we get a replacement.”
The Black Stars will be back in action in March when the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers resume.
