Hughton, Irish-Ghanaian has had his name mentioned once again as potential Black Stars manager after the sacking of the Serbian Coach Milovan Rajevac.
Hughton, just like in 2014 is very close in securing the coaching role. The last time the former Tottenham Hostpur manager came this close, he lost it to former Chelsea manager Avram Grant.
Joy news reporter, Muftawu Nabila explains that after Ghana’s Brazil 2014 fiasco, the government recommended Chris Hughton to the then GFA president Kwasi Nyantakyi.
The government, according to Muftawu, felt Hughton was the right man to restructure and start the rebuilding progress for the four-time African champions.
However, the FA after showing Kwasi Appiah the exit decided to open its doors for applications from interested managers, and Hughton did not apply again.
Therefore, although Hughton was the choice of the government and could have landed the job through political backing, the FA chose Avram Grant who they deemed to have a better CV and had applied.
