Ghana coach Chris Hughton tasked to improve junior national teams

Ghana Football Association Communications Chief Henry Asante Twum says Black Stars coach Chris Hughton has been tasked to scout and recommend talents for junior teams.

This follows Hughton’s recent commitment to watching local matches in Ghana during and after the international break.

The gaffer has watched the Black Meteors beat Algeria in Kumasi and continues spending time at some Ghana Premier League games.

“One of the things we discussed with Chris was to make good use of the opportunity anytime he finds himself here.

“He is somebody who loves the game and always wants to get closer to the action,” Asante Twum told TV3.

“Chris is the coach of the Black Stars but he has other responsibilities like advicing and offering guidance to the other national teams.

“Watching the games gives him the opportunity to also recommend players to the U-23, U-20, and U-17 sides.

Henry Asante Twum continued on the reason for adding the monitoring of the junior teams to Hughton’s tasks.

“This is part of the mid to long-term process of incorporating and giving everybody the idea of our work.”

“It’s a process. We are in the process of building a winning squad one more time. It will take time.

“It needs a lot of investment. Investment here talks about time, money, energy ideas, thinking, and a whole lot more.”

In Hughton’s first two games as, Ghana beat Angola 1-0 in Kumasi and recorded a 1-1  stalemate in Luanda.
