Black Stars head coach, Otto Addo

Black Stars head coach, Otto Addo, has revealed he has gone past the role of a scout at German Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund.

Addo has been integral to the developments of youngsters like Youssoufa Moukoko and at some point Erling Haaland at the German club.

Many Ghanaians have addressed the former Black Stars player as a scout back in Germany but the 46-year-old said he no more works as a scout.

According to the former Dortmund midfielder, his role is more of an assistant coach for the club as he plays a vital role in deciding which young players are ready for the first team.

“First of all, I am not a scout, I am a coach. I did scouting in 2014 for the Ghana National team. I joined the national team because I live in Germany so I did the scouting in 2014. After that, I never scouted again so I am working as assistant; more of top talent coach in charge…especially the young players at Borussia Dortmund,” he said.

“I guide them, I coach them on positional training and I assist the coach during the training during the week, I guide the young players when they go down, especially [when] they don’t play in the first team.

“They play for the second team. I guide them, I analyse their games and I talk about the games with the young players… That’s very important for us; For Borussia Dortmund to develop their players. They get special feedback from me.

“I decide which young player will come up to the first team and can train and play with the first team.”

Addo is expected to lead the Black Stars at the 2022 FFA World Cup to be staged in Qatar.
