Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced that the new Black Stars coach Chris Hughton will be unveiled in Kumasi on March 20, 2023.


In a statement signed by GFA communication director, Henry Asante Twun, the former Brighton and Hove Albion FC manager will be unveiled as part of the build up to the African cup of Nations qualifier double header against Angola.


The first leg will hold at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi on March 23 while the return leg is slated for March 27 in Luanda.


According to the statement, Hughton will hold a world press conference where he’s expected to announce his plans, ideology and expectations for the Black Stars to the GFA before presenting him to the public.


Sports Joust reliably gathered that Hughton is yet to sign any contract with the GFA because the soccer governing body is still waiting for its Attorney for a comprehensive advice on the contract before it can be signed by both parties to avoid problems in the future.


The GFA in the past had problems with some ex Black Stars coaches over salary because of poor contract agreement.


Notable was erstwhile Black Stars coach Otto Addo who had to relinquish the role after last year over loose contract terms and roles.


Over Sixty foreign coaches applied for the Black Stars job. Some of the applicants include Georges Leekens, Bernard Simondi, Hugo Broos, Denis Lavagne, Hicham Jadrane Chazouani.


Others are Claude Leroy, Philippe Troussier, Badou Zaki, Roberto Mancini, Yasen Petrov,Gao Hongbo, Tom Saintfiet, Florent Ibenge, Paul Munster, Henri Kasperjack, Herve Renard, Milutin sredojevic, Ernest Mtawali, Laurent Blanc, Christophe Galtier, Bruno Genesio, Remi garde, Christian Gourcuff.


Coaches who also showed interest in the Ghana job were Nabil Maaloul, Benzarti, Sami Trabelsi, Pierre Andre Schuman, Paulo Silva, Claudio Robeirto Riveira, Georges Sorin, David Boulanger, Patrice Carteron, Bernard Casoni, Richard tardy, Jacky Bonnevay, Simon Mac Menemy, Franck Dumas, Raoul Savoy, Bernard Challandes, Didier Olle’ Nicolle, Georges Leekens
