Technical advisor of the Black Stars Chris Hughton, wants Ghanaians to adopt a positive attitude towards the team ahead of the World Cup qualifying play-off versus Nigeria.
A poor showing at the Africa Cup of Nations coupled with Nigeria’s strong group-stage run, has left many Ghanaians fearing the worst ahead of the tie. But Hughton, who was earlier tipped to replace Milovan Rajevac, wants Ghanaians to be positive as he believes the Black Stars have the arsenals to beat Nigeria.
“I’ll like to urge Ghanaians to remain calm and positive about the team because we strongly believe we have the quality, desire and hunger to achieve the results that we want. It is our aim to qualify for the Qatar World Cup and we all have a duty to make that dream a reality.
“Ghana has done it before and we can guarantee you that everybody associated with the Black Stars wants this opportunity again to perform on a world stage. This moment presents an opportunity to write history and we – players, technical staff, Ghana Football Association and the government – are all committed to it. We value your support, we are Ghana and we are ready,” the former Brighton manager said.
Hughton will provide technical support to head coach Otto Addo and assistants, Didi Dramani and George Boateng.
