Over 500 applications received so far for Black Stars coaching jobs – GFA Vice President


Ghana Football Association (GFA) has received over five hundred applications for the vacant managerial position with the Black Stars, according to the vice president of the GFA, Mark Addo.

Mark Addo is spearheading the search for a new coach following the dismissal of Chris Hughton after a disappointing performance at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Speaking on Akoma FM, Addo said, “This is my second time leading a committee to pick a coach, and I can tell Ghanaians that we will hire the best coach for the Black Stars according to the criteria.”

He continued, “We received over 500 applications for the job and have shortlisted a handful. We are currently going through them and want to finish by next week.”

Addo emphasised, “Nobody wants outcomes more than we (the FA), believe me; it just so happens that things don’t always go as planned for various reasons, but we must keep moving forward.”

Ghana only managed to secure two points from three matches, resulting in a third-place finish in Group B.

This group stage elimination at the AFCON marks the Black Stars’ inability to progress beyond the group stage in the last three major tournaments: AFCON 2021, FIFA World Cup 2022, and AFCON 2023.
