Ghana has sacked Chris Hughton as their head coach following the national team’s exit from the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
His dismissal was confirmed by the Ghana Football Association Tuesday night.
The Black Stars were eliminated from the group stages, after taking only two points from their three Group B matches.
Their slim hopes of qualifying as one of the four best third-placed teams ended on Tuesday, thanks to Mauritania’s shock 1-0 win over Algeria in Bouaké.
“The Ghana Football Association wishes to announce that Chris Hughton has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the senior National team with immediate effect.
“The Ghana Football Association will in the coming days provide a roadmap on the future direction of the Black Stars,” GFA’s official statement read in part.”
Hughton’s backroom staff have all also been let go by the federation.
