World Cup

Ghana: ‘I envision myself in Germany,’ Otto Addo said of leaving the Black Stars after the World Cup.

Otto Addo, the head coach of the Black Stars, has intimated that he may step down after the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The 47-year-old stated that he did not want to relocate to Ghana anytime soon, which is a need for any national team coach.

The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder stated that he prefers to stay in Germany in the next years.

“I think, as a national coach, you should also live in the country you work for in the long term. But I see myself personally in Germany in the next few years,” Addo told Ruhr14, as quoted by Goal.

Addo was named interim coach of the Black Stars in February, but he also works as a scout and assistant trainer at Dortmund.

His stock rose after he led Ghana to a World Cup berth at the expense of West African rivals Nigeria.

As a result, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) extended his contract as head coach till after the World Cup.

Prosper Harrison Addo, the GFA’s general secretary, stated in May that the Association was fine with Addo juggling his jobs at Ghana and Dortmund.

“The GFA has been talking to the coaches of clubs and very soon we will finalise contracts with them,” he told the Graphic Sports.

“We are working to get all the technical teams together, as advised by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and we are at a stage where all of them are okay.

“We have to agree to contracts and get other stakeholders such as the government which is responsible for paying national team coaches to agree to the terms and then we sign the contracts.”

Otto’s recent comments, though, hint he may not stay after the World Cup, where the Black Stars face Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea in Group H.
