Former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah rallies support for Black Stars new coach Chris Hughton

Former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah has called for support for Black Stars new coach Chris Hughton.

Hughton, who previously managed Brighton and Hove Albion, replaces Otto Addo, who resigned after the World Cup.

The former Brighton boss will be assisted by Didi Dramani and George Boateng, who served under Addo during his tenure.

In an interview with Citi FM, the former Juventus star entreated Ghanaians to support the national team wholeheartedly.

“I mean we all know Chris Hughton, who has coached a lot of clubs in the UK,” he told Citi Sports.

“He came to Ghana and was part of the team that travelled to Qatar for the World Cup. He was the director then and now he is the coach.

“We are all hoping that, we will rally our support behind him and he will bring our Black Stars back from where we use to see the Black Stars.”

Appiah was the first Ghana captain to qualify the West African nation to the World Cup and was also part of the history-making team at the 2010 World Cup.

Meanwhile, Hughton is expected in Ghana this week to start preparations for the Angola game.
