Otto Addo, Maxwell Konadu named Black Stars assistant coaches
Former Black Stars player, Otto Addo and Maxwell Konadu have been named assistant coaches to newly-appointed Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac.
Addo, an assistant trainer at Bundesliga giants Dortmund and Konadu, trainer of Ghana Premier League outfit, Legon Cities, will play part-time roles for the senior national team.
Announcing the duo’s appointment, President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku, revealed that legendary ex-Black Stars goalkeeper, Richard ‘Olele’ Kingston, will maintain his role as goalkeeper’s trainer for the team.
“I can say that we have two Ghanaians deputising for the new coach of the Black Stars in the person of Maxwell Konadu and Otto Addo.
“We believe they are the best to assist Milovan to do his job having already had stints with the national team,” he noted.
Coach Konadu played an assistant role to Kwasi Appiah and Avram Grant in the past and accepting the job this time around makes it his fourth stint with the Stars.
Addo is returning to the national team as a coach for the first time since playing for the Stars at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
Coach ‘Milo’ is expected to put in place the best of the team ahead of Ghana’s double header 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Zimbabwe next month.
