Ghana Set To Hire New Coach Ahead Of World Cup Qualifiers


After the poor outing of the Black Stars of Ghana at the AFCON 2021 tournament that led to the sacking of Milovan Rajevac, the Ghana football ministry is set to hire a new coach ahead of the World Cup qualifiers.

The Black Stars Of Ghana

Ghana's Milovan Rajevac was sacked after a poor display at the AFCON tournament. Ghana had failed to win a single match since the competition began on January 9, 2022.


It is believed that a former coach of a team in the premier league of Ghanian descent would take charge of the Black Stars of Ghana.

The Ghana Football Federation and Sports Ministry reportedly met on Friday, February 4, 2022, to decide if the former Brighton coach, Chris Hughton, will take over as the coach of the Black Stars of Ghana and lead them to the World Cup, with his first test being the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the World Cup qualifiers.
