Ibrahim Tanko backs Otto Addo and his backroom staff to lead Black Stars to “promise land”

Published on: 13 May 2022

Former Ghana assistant coach Ibrahim Tanko believes Otto Addo and his coaching staff can lead the Black Stars to glory.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is set to announce Addo as permanent coach with assistance from Didi Dramani, George Boateng and Chris Hughton.

The quartet masterminded Ghana’s qualification to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and they have received the backing of Tanko, a former assistant of Black Stars, to lead the team to promise land.

“I think these four men are top coaches. Their performance against Nigeria gives us all hope and that, they can take us to the promise land. So, definitely, I am in support of them going to the World Cup and also taking through the AFCON qualifiers,” Tanko told

GFA President Kurt Okraku stated on Thursday that an announcement confirming Addo and his supporting cast was imminent.

"Rumour mongering is becoming the order of the day in football...Just to be clear, I do not have a scheduled meeting with Chris Hughton," Okraku wrote.

"The FA, having assessed the work of the technical team of the Black Stars, and having engaged all relevant stakeholders, is working to keep Otto [Addo], Didi [Dramani], George [Boatentg] and Chris [Hughton] in their respective roles for all immediate assignments."

He added, "Official announcement expected shortly...Other need areas of the technical team that the coach has identified is being addressed."
