Former Ghanaian footballer, Charles Taylor, who previously played for Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko, has called for the removal of Chris Hughton as the head coach of the Black Stars.
Taylor expressed his concerns about Hughton’s perceived lack of tactical abilities, stating that he believes Hughton is not suitable for the position of head coach for the four-time African champions.
Chris Hughton, who was previously the manager of Brighton and Hove Albion, took over as Ghana’s head coach in February of this year. Prior to this role, he served as the technical director during Otto Addo’s tenure at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
In an interview with Angel TV, Taylor stated, “Chris Hughton doesn’t deserve to be the Black Stars coach; his tactical abilities are very low. He can’t create competitions among the players, he always uses old players, leading to abysmal results. He needs to be sacked.”
Since his appointment, Hughton has overseen three games during the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers in March and June. Out of these three fixtures, Ghana managed to secure one victory and two draws.
