Director of Communications at the Ghana Football Association, Henry Asante Twum, has confirmed to Luv FM that all four technical team members of the Black Stars who masterminded Ghana’s qualification to the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, will be maintained.

According to him, negotiations with all the four technical team members – Head Coach Otto Addo, Technical Advisor, Chris Hutton and assistants; Masaud Didi Dramani and George Boateng – have been completed.

Speaking on Luv FM’s “Kickoff” Sports Show, the FA spokesperson revealed that the only outstanding issue is settling on figures and duration of their various contracts.

“Clubs who own these individuals have been engaged, we have crossed that carpet, the individuals involved have been engaged and we have crossed that carpet as well, we are talking figures. Figures that include tenure and terms and period of engagement, that is where we are now,” he said.

Mr. Asante Twum also revealed that GFA is currently engaging the Ministry of Sports on proposals for remuneration which is expected to be concluded soon.

“In talking figures, the FA is not alone, we do it with the Ministry. Yesterday, we met with the Minister on some other issues, but we still engaged him on this matter and the Minister asked for a formal communication in that regard. The General Secretary is working on it and in the coming days, we will iron out all the nitty gritty and the minor issues and once all is done and agreement is reached, there will be an official communication from the FA,” he stated.

Ghana is expected to start its 2023 AFCON qualifying campaign against Madagascar at the Cape Coast stadium early next month.
