Otto Addo quits Ghana job after World Cup elimination
Otto Addo has left his role as Ghana head coach following the Black Stars’ elimination from the 2022 World Cup at the group stage.
The Borussia Dortmund assistant coach was already set to leave after the Mundial as his contract was extended until December.
“I always said if we qualified for the World Cup I’d resign afterwards, even if we were world champions,” he after Ghana lost 2-0 to Uruguay on Friday.
The 47-year-old was initial appointed on interim basis in February to replace sacked Milovan Rajevac, but got his contract extended after guiding Ghana to qualify for the World Cup.
He added, “my family see our future in Germany.
“Football is beautiful, sometimes it is ugly. It is ugly for us today. We have to learn and I’m very sure we will learn from this in the future.”
Ghana beat South Korea in between defeats by Portugal and Uruguay – in Addo’s final game – to finish bottom of Group H.
