Ghana sacks coach Chris Hughton after AFCON exit

Chris Hughton has reportedly been sacked as coach of Ghana after the Black Stars failed to progress to the next stage in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.

Hughton’s team did not win any of its three group-stage matches in Cote D’Ivoire, recording only two points and finishing third in Group B.

In a statement on Tuesday by the Ghana Football Federation, it was revealed that the executive council sacked the Englishman.

The statement read, “The Ghana Football Association (GFA) wishes to announce that Chris Hughton has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the senior national team with immediate effect.

“The executive council has also taken a decision to dissolve the technical team of the Black Stars.

“The Ghana Football Association will in the coming days, provide a roadmap on the future direction of the Black Stars.”
