Chris Hughton’s term as Black Stars coach has been criticized by two important members of the Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) Executive Council.
Randy Abbey and George Amoako, both members of the Executive Council, say the 64-year-old has underperformed thus far.
“We are not too happy, we think there has to be a lot of improvement which needs to be made. We also don’t have all the time in the world, so we need to be fast about it,” Abbey told Takoradi-based Spice FM.
Amoako was equally scathing in his assessment of Hughton, telling Angel FM: “Have you seen Chris Hughton’s performance? He has played three matches. He hasn’t been impressive.
“If you look at the teams, Madagascar. I went to see the game against Angola and allthe games I have seen we play under him. I am not really impressed. Let’s pray at least that we will qualify for the 2023 AFCON.”
The complaints follow Ghana’s dreary goalless stalemate with Madagascar in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers last month.

Hughton’s team was thwarted for long periods by the tenacious Malagasy, who limited Ghana to just one shot on goal in 90 minutes.
Hughton had been unbeaten since taking over as coach of the Black Stars, but has now won just one of three games.
Meanwhile, the Black Stars must defeat the Central African Republic in their last group encounter to qualify for next year’s AFCON.
