Otto Addo is expected to vacate his position as Ghana Black Stars Coach and return to Borussia Dortmund when his short-term contract expires at the end of December. Who will succeed him?
The question remains without any tangible answer at this time. However, the Chairman of Ghana Black Stars Management Committee Mark Addo said the Ghana Football Association has a plan for a successor to Otto Addo who will leave his post as Heard Coach of the national team at the end of this month.
‘’We knew that Coach (Otto Addo) will be leaving in six months, so we do have a succession plan’’ Mark Addo told the press at a briefing in Doha on Saturday.
‘’We just going through the process, it’s a process, you know the Ghana Football Association works with different stakeholders in this decision-making process’’.
“Like I said, first thing is to get our reports in quickly, have a meeting within our stakeholders, including the President, the Executive Council and Government and once that is done, we will make a decision on his successor. So yes, we have a plan’’ he added.
Ghanains were not able to make it the round of 16 of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 after losing last week, 2-0, against Uruguay.
Otto Addo, the former Ghanaian footballer, was expected to help Ghana win Qatar 2022. But the end of his mission is already known even before the tournament ends.
“Yes, I said it before when I started as assistant coach in October (September) last year. It was clear actually I would stop after the World Cup,” Otto said after Ghana’s last game at the Qatar 2022.
“At the moment me and my family see our future in Germany and I like my role at Dortmund and we are very happy there.
“From the day I started I said if we qualified I would resign after the World Cup, even if we are champions.”
Otto Addo will be the second coach Ghana have dropped this year. The West African country has, for a second time, sacked coach Milovan Rajevac after he failed to guide the Black Stars to victory at AFCON 2021.
