Henry Asante Twum, the Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Chris Hughton, the head coach of the Black Stars, has been tasked with the responsibility of watching local top-flight matches.
Hughton pledged to watch more local games after being unveiled in March, and has since been to various stadiums to observe matches.
Asante Twum explained that Hughton’s role goes beyond managing the Black Stars, and he is also expected to help improve other national teams.
By watching games, Hughton can recommend players who may be suitable for the Black Stars or other national teams, such as the U-23, U-20, and U-17 teams. Asante Twum emphasized that this is part of a mid-to-long-term process of building a winning squad.
“One of the things we discussed with Chris was to make good use of the opportunity anytime he finds himself here. He is somebody who loves the game and always wants to get closer to the action,” he told TV3.
“Chris is the coach of the Black Stars but he has other responsibilities. Advice, guidance what have you to the other national teams so watching the games gives him the opportunity to also recommend players who fall within the competition. U-23, U-20, and U-17 who are still playing in the Black Stars and those he thinks also qualify to play in the Black Stars will be given a fair opportunity.
He added, “So it’s part of the mid to long-term process of incorporating everyone and giving everybody the opportunity to have a fair share of what is being done.”
“It’s a process. We are in the process of building a winning squad one more time. It will take time. It needs a lot of.” he added.
Hughton has already recorded a win and a draw in his first two games as head coach of the Black Stars, and will be looking to steer the team to end the country’s 41-year Africa Cup of Nations trophy drought in Ivory Coast next year.
Ghana needs a point or a win in their final two AFCON qualifiers against Madagascar and the Central African Republic in June.
