Otto Addo has advised the next coach of the senior national team of Ghana to be bold and fearless implementing his policies and plans for the team.
Addo announced his decision to leave his job at the Black Stars after the West African elimination from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Ghana failed to make it to the knockout stage of the global showpiece in Qatar after suffering a 2-0 defeat to Uruguay in their last group H game at the Al Khalifa International Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.
Speaking at Ghana Football Association’s media briefing after the World Cup exit, the 47-year-old offered an advise to the next Black Stars gaffer to be confident in decision making.
“He should be himself, fulfil his ideas no matter who tries to come between but he should listen to his coaching staff, take advice and if there is anything I can do to help, I am always there,” Addo said.
“I will give advice and help my motherland. [He] should not listen to negativity too much, be fearless,”
Addo won four games during his time with the Black Stars, beating Madagascar and South Korea in competitive games with the other victories coming against Nicaragua and Switzerland in friendlies.
He was named Ghana’s head coach in February after the sacking of Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac following a disastrous campaign at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
