Coach of the senior national team of Ghana, Otto Addo has resigned following Ghana’s elimination from the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar.
The Black Stars who were defeated in their last group game against Uruguay by two goals to nil bowed out of the competition recording two defeats and one win in three games.
Otto Addo who led Ghana in their play-off games against Nigeria to qualify for the biggest international football tournament said following the defeat in what was dubbed a revenge game for the 2010 hand ball incident with Luis Suarez in South Africa:
Addo in an interview with reporters after the game confirmed his decision to step down as the head coach of Ghana after ten months of being in charge.
According to him, he made an earlier announcement off leaving his job at the Black Stars after the 2022 World Cup to focus on his trainer scout role at Broussia Dortmund.
“I said it in October last year after accepting the assistant coach job [under coach Milovan Rajevac]. It was clear I would stop after the World Cup, even if we were World champions,” Addo told reporters in Doha, Qatar.
“At the moment me and my family see our future in Germany. I like my role at Dortmund and I am happy there”
Ghana played Portugal in their first game of the tournament where the Black Stars lost by three goals to two. The team went on to beat South Korea by three goals to two before being eliminated from the competition following their 2-0 defeat against Uruguay.
