Otto Addo, Ghana’s coach, has resigned following the Black Stars’ elimination from the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The 47-year-old, who took over as head coach of the Black Stars in April, is stepping down after eight months in charge.
Otto Addo was appointed interim manager prior to Ghana’s World Cup playoff against Nigeria, supervising the team’s attempt to return to the global stage.
In a press conference following the game, the former Ghana international announced his resignation.
“I said before, it was clear I would stop after the World Cup. At the moment, me and my family see our future in Germany, I like my role at Dortmund,” the gaffer said.
Addo works as “talent coach” at the Bundesliga club, where he previously played.
“I said I would resign after the World Cup even if we were world champions,” he added.
With Addo’s departure, Ghana must act quickly to find a new coach before continuing their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign in March.
