OFFICIAL: Otto Addo returns as Black Stars coach

Former Ghana midfielder Otto Addo has been confirmed as the next manager for their senior national team – The Black Stars, Borussia Dortmund has confirmed.

The German Bundesliga club on Friday announced the end of their working relationship with the Ghanaian and wished him well in his next job as the Ghana manager.

The 48-year-old led the Black Stars to the World Cup in Qatar as caretaker manager and returns to a team that failed to make it past the group stage of the just-ended AFCON in Cote D'Ivoire.

Ghana FA President Kurt Okraku confirmed his appointment via a statement: “Otto was exceptional in the interview process and was rated highly by the search committee, hence the decision.

“There were some brilliant individuals among the coaches who applied for the job, so the committee took the pain to interview a chunk of them to pick their thoughts on their intentions to transform the team within a short period of time due to our peculiar situation”

“The Committee was overly satisfied with Otto’s performance for which reason he was recommended to the Executive Council for approval,” President Simeon-Okraku added.
