Ghana head coach, Otto Addo has expressed how difficult it is working as a coach and combining life as a family man.

Otto Addo who retired from playing football to become a coach has always been involved in the game even after hanging his boots.

As the interim head coach for the Ghana senior national team and a youth development coach for the Borussia Dortmund team in Germany, Addo often spends more time on the pitch.

Speaking in an interview, Coach Otto Addo disclosed that he manages to sneak in one day in a week to spend time with his family.

According to him, although the next coming days with Ghana and Dortmund might be demanding he is up for the task and would hold on tight as a family man.

“It's manageable: I have a contract for six months until after the World Cup. We have international matches in June, a ten-day trip in September and then the preparation for the World Cup and the tournament is on the agenda. We come from a completely different base when it comes to that – during my year and a half in Denmark, I was home once a week.

“During my first year in Mönchengladbach, too, I spent a maximum of once a week with my family, more like every two weeks. Of course, family life is always a challenge, especially when you have children. But I'm not the only coach or player who knows that,” Coach Otto Addo said.

Early next month, Coach Otto Addo will be in Ghana for an international assignment when the Black Stars kick off the qualifiers for the 2023 AFCON.
