The Ghana Football Association(GFA) are reportedly set to announce Otto Addo as Black Stars' head coach on a permanent basis.

According to joy sports, the GFA is expected to name Otto as the substantive coach in the next 7 days.

The Borussia Dortmund technical team member after showcasing his tactical prowess, the president, Nana Addo Dankwah-Akuffo-Addo congratulated him on a Phone call, saying Ghana will 'kidnap' him.

“Well done but when you come here we are going to kidnap you, we are not going to allow you to go back to Dortmund. So be very careful because you are not going to leave Ghana again."

Otto Addo led a four-member interim technical team which include, Chris Hughton, George Boateng, and Mas Ud-Didi Dramani who were appointed in February 2022.

They were tasked to qualify Ghana for the World Cup, hence, their job as an interim body is over after executing the task given.

The GFA spokesperson, Henry Asante Twum has said a new coach will be appointed soon.

“I do not think it will take much time. They are in communication with the individuals concerned, having regular discussions with their employers, and many factors are being considered,” he told Luv FM.
