Chris Hughton is a bad coach – GFA Executive Council Member 


Ghana Football Association (GFA) Executive Council member Nana Oduro Sarfo strongly criticised Chris Hughton, stating that he was not up to the task of coaching the Black Stars.

In an interview, Sarfo expressed that Hughton’s tactics were not effective and described him as a “bad coach.” This comes after the Black Stars failed to advance from their group at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

The four-time African champions secured only two points out of a possible nine, including a defeat to Cape Verde, a 2-2 draw with Egypt, and a crucial draw with Mozambique.

The latter result proved devastating as the Black Stars squandered a two-goal lead in the final six minutes, leading to their elimination.

Hughton, along with his assistants George Boateng and Didi Dramani, faced termination in a mass sacking by the GFA a day after the team’s exit.

Sarfo justified the decision, emphasising on Asempa FM as reported by Footballghana, “I don’t want to describe Chris Hughton as a bad coach, but he was not good enough to coach the Black Stars,” adding, “His tactics were not good enough. He is a bad coach.”

The GFA, led by Vice President Mark Addo, is currently conducting a search for a new coach, with a deadline set for interested applicants on Friday, February 2.
