President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has charged the Ghana Football Association (GFA) with maintaining the Black Stars technical staff for the Qatar 2022 World Cup before making long-term choices.

The present technical staff, according to Akufo-Addo, can lead the team far in the Qatar World Cup later this year.

Addressing the Black Stars and their technical team and other officials of the GFA at the Jubilee House on Wednesday, 30 March 2022, the President said: “I’m hoping that the technical team that has been put together for these two matches will, at least, take us through the World Cup itself…”

He told the GFA President, Mr Okraku: “Whatever you can do to make sure that the technical team stays together, at least, until Qatar and after that, we can take the long-term decisions…”

Interim head coach Otto Addo is joined by former Asante Kotoko coach Mas-Ud Dramani and Dutch-born former Aston Villa Ghanaian player George Boateng on the technical team, with Chris Hughton acting as Otto Addo's technical adviser.

“We thank you, you’ve lifted the spirit of the nation and now we have every reason to look forward to your performance in Qatar…everybody is going to be behind you and we are going to give you all the maximum support that we can, the ministry, the officials of the GFA, and all the other organisations in the state that works with sports and football,” the President told the players.

The Black Stars were awarded a World Cup berth after a 1-1 tie with Nigeria in Abuja after a goalless draw in the Baba Yara stadium on Tuesday, March 29, 2022.
