Black Stars have not been good before I was appointed – Otto Addo calls for time after drawing with Uganda

Ghana coach, Otto Addo has called for more time and patience following Black Stars draw against Uganda.

The West African country after losing to the Super Eagles in their earlier friendly game were hoping to return to winning ways but were held to a 2-2 drawn game against the Cranes of Uganda on Tuesday at the Stade de Marrakesh.

Jerome Opoku and Jordan Ayew scored but the Black Stars conceded in each half.

Addo has been tasked to build a formidable side after the Black Stars’ poor performance at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Ivory Coast.

Speaking after the game, the 46-year-old called for more time and patience to be able to build a formidable side capable of winning laurels.

“Finishing must be better under pressure. It’s a lot of work, it’s a lot of work but I have to say this is what I expected because…we were not good even before I came so it’s a process,” he said.

In a turn of events, Alidu Seidu and Mohammed Salisu were both shown red cards in the final minutes of the game, adding to the challenges faced by the Black Stars.

The Black Stars now shift focus to the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, with Ghana set to face Mali and the Central African Republic in June later this year.
