Chris Hughton: Black Stars technical advisor working on new players

Black Stars technical advisor Chris Hughton is monitoring players in the top leagues ahead of the 2022 Fifa World Cup.

The senior national team director is preparing for the tournament in Qatar and the Afcon qualifier against Angola.

Top additions have been made in the side, with Mohammed Salisu, Inaki Williams, and Tariq Lamptey all committing to the Black Stars last June.

According to Hughton, more additions are possible.

“Some of the players I would have been less familiar with but my experience helped.

“Also, dressing rooms are more or less the same wherever you go,” he told the Irish Sun.

The 63-year-old gaffer is the first black player to represent Ireland in 1979 also played at the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

Hughton represented his motherland and now with Ghana, the former Brighton coach will be in advisory duties for his fatherland.

The Black Stars are placed in Group H with Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea.
