You’ve put yourself into a mess- Former Arsenal star fires

Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong assumes the anomalies of the Ghana Football Association urged the Government to inflict Chris Hughton as the next Black Stars coach.

The Kurt Okraku administration has achieved low marks after their two previous appointments backfire.

CK Akonnor was the first to be appointed in January 2020 but the ex-Ghana captain got fired 21 months later following a 1-0 defeat to South Africa in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

His successor was Milovan Rajevac, returning for a second spell, who led Ghana’s calamitous 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Rajevac failed to weave his magic as the Black Stars got evicted at the group stage without a win in three matches.

Some government grants are noted to have led negotiations with the former English Premier League manager to reinstate the Serbian.

Against the wish of the current Ghana FA hierarchy, the former Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and Brighton manager will be named substantive national team next week.

Hughton will be assisted by Otto Addo and Ibrahim Tanko.

He expected to led the team in March’s two-legged final World Cup qualifier against West African rivals Nigeria.

Many have interpreted this move by government as interference but Frimpong says the Okraku-led administration have themselves to blame.

”The Ghana Football Association got themselves into this trash. They are the reason why the Government is deciding as to who to become the Black Stars coach,” Frimpong said on GTV Sports Plus.

”They were given the chance and on two occasions they declined the nation.”
