Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association [GFA]n, Henry Asante Twum, has confirmed that all four technical team members of the Black Stars will be maintained.
Addo, who was named as the interim head coach for the national team, together with Didi Dramani and George Boateng as deputy coaches and Chris Hughton as technical advisor masterminded Ghana’s qualification to the 2022 World Cup against Nigeria in March.
Speaking to Kumasi-based Luv FM, the FA spokesperson revealed that the only outstanding issue is settling on figures and duration of their various contracts.
Clubs who own these individuals have been engaged, we have crossed that carpet, the individuals involved have been engaged and we have crossed that carpet as well, we are talking figures. Figures that include tenure and terms and period of engagement, that is where we are now,” he said.
Mr. Asante Twum also revealed that GFA is currently engaging the Ministry of Sports on proposals for remuneration which is expected to be concluded soon.
In talking figures, the FA is not alone, we do it with the Ministry. Yesterday, we met with the Minister on some other issues, but we still engaged him on this matter and the Minister asked for formal communication in that regard. The General Secretary is working on it and in the coming days, we will iron out all the nitty-gritty and the minor issues and once all is done and agreement is reached, there will be an official communication from the FA,” he stated.
Ghana is expected to start its 2023 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] qualifying campaign against Madagascar at the Cape Coast Stadium early next month.
The technical team will lead the team to the 2022 World Cup later this year in Qatar.
