Former Brighton boss, Chris Hughton, says he is delighted to be handed the role of Black Stars manager.
Hughton, 64, was announced as the successor to Otto Addo some four weeks ago but was unveiled to the press on the morning of March 20.
He was long linked with the role after the exit of Milovan Rajevac in 2021 but had to serve as technical advisor for the team in the build-up to the Nigeria World Cup decider and Qatar 2022.
“To represent Ghana and the Black Stars as the head coach is something I am incredibly proud of. It’s something I’ll give everything to make the team as successful as possible.
“I’ll give everything to make sure the communication and relationship I have with this association and the supporters
“Our game is about support – from the association, but mostly, the support from the huge array of fans we have and that starts with a very difficult game at Kumasi on Thursday,” Hughton told the media at his unveiling.
The former Irish international has been handed a contract which will run for 21 months, with an extension hinging on the team’s performance in the period.
