Per the account of verifiable sources, Ghana’s coach Chris Hughton has inked a 3-year contract with the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The report states that Chris Hughton has been tasked to qualify Ghana for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations tournament. He’s also being charged to clinch the 2024 AFCON tournament and qualify Ghana for the 2026 World Cup tournament.

Chris Hughton will be unveiled in Kumasi ahead of Ghana’s game against Angola. His unveiling was delayed due to the death of his father.

“The former Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur manager will be presented to the media to share his vision, ideology, and expectations with the public in Kumasi.

“The first engagement between the coach and the media in Kumasi will be a platform for the Football Association to also make public the targets, terms of engagement, and other relevant information pertaining to the manager’s work.

“The time and venue will be officially communicated in the coming days”.
