Former Ghana Midfielder, Otto Addo, has expressed his delight at being appointed as the head coach of the Black Stars, describing it as a tremendous honor.

The 48-year-old will make his return to manage the senior national team after stepping down following Ghana’s exit from the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

According to the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Addo has been offered a 34-month contract, with the possibility of extending it for an additional two years.

Speaking to Dortmund’s media team, Addo highlighted his interim coaching experience, which he believes has equipped him well for the role of leading Ghana’s national team permanently.

“It is a great privilege to be able to take on the role of head coach of my national team. I’ve already gained a lot of experience in this role as interim coach and I’m looking forward to the task that lies ahead of me from the summer,” he said.

Addo is set to join the Ghanaian team during the international break, where he will briefly return to Dortmund to finalize transitional arrangements before assuming his full-time duties in Ghana in May 2024.

An official unveiling of Otto Addo is expected before Ghana’s upcoming international friendly matches against Nigeria and Uganda in March.
