Former Ghana coach, Kwesi Appiah has called for support for the current Black Stars head coach, Chris Hughton.

The Irish Ghanaian trainer replaced Otto Addo on a 21-month deal.

Hughton steered the Black Stars to qualify for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

However, after a seemingly good start, the former Premier League manager has come under pressure following the back-to-back defeats in the October international friendly games.

The Black Stars were beaten 2-0 by Mexico but a humiliating 4-0 loss to the USA.

Following the shocking results, fans have raised concerns ahead of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers and the 2023 AFCON.

But Kwesi Appiah, who is now the head coach of Sudan says Hughton needs support to succeed.

“As of now, let us wait for the report from the friendly games,” Appiah, who also doubles as the Technical Director of Asante Kotoko said on Asempa FM’s Ultimate Sports Show.

“But at the moment, Chris Hughton is the head coach and we must support him. Let us hope in the upcoming games, there will be some difference in the performance of the team then we can assess him properly,” he added.

Chris Hughton will hope to return to winning ways when the Black Stars come up against Madagascar and Comoros in the World Cup qualifiers next month.
