“Black star team was not good enough even before i became coach”- Otto Addo

Otto Addo, the coach of the Black Stars, understands the difficult task of rebuilding the Ghanaian national football team.

He has acknowledged the tough conditions he faced when he first took on the role. Despite facing Nigeria and Uganda in his first two matches and experiencing a 2-1 loss and a 2-2 draw respectively, Addo remains dedicated to the process of rebuilding the team.

The team has been struggling recently, with early exits from the Africa Cup of Nations tournaments. Addo emphasized the need to work on finishing under pressure and recognized the significant effort required to raise the team’s standards.

Looking ahead to the 2026 World Cup qualifiers against Mali and the Central African Republic in June, Addo is determined to overcome the challenges and improve the team’s performance.

His appointment signals a renewed commitment to addressing the team’s weaknesses and revitalizing Ghana’s football aspirations after recent setbacks, including the disappointing exit from the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. Addo is focused on leading the Black Stars back to success.
