It’s a process – Ghana coach Otto Addo addresses slow start to second Black Stars spell

Ghana coach Otto Addo is urging patience in his second stint with the Black Stars team after failing to win of the two games played during the international break.

The Black Stars failed to win their first two games in Otto Addo’s second stint as Ghana national team head coach.

The four-time champions from Africa suffered a 2-1 defeat against traditional rivals Nigeria last Friday, conceding goals in both halves.

In their recent international friendly at Stade Marrakesh, the Black Stars twice surrendered their lead, resulting in a 2-2 draw against Uganda.

Defender Jerome Opoku headed home Ghana’s opening goal before Kotoko star Steven Desse Mukwala leveled pegging for Uganda.

Crystal Palace star Jordan Ayew converted from the spot to restore Ghana’s lead but the Cranes staged a comeback in the dyeing embers of the game to snatch a draw after Mohammed Shaban found the back of the net.

Speaking after the game, Otto Addo addressed his slow start to life as head coach of the national team.

“In all, the football we played was not good enough. We should have created more chances especially in the final third, so we have to work on creating more chances and finishing must be better under pressure. So we have a lot of work to do. To be honest, the last games in January were not good before I came so it’s a process” he said.

Ghana faces a crucial away 2026 World Cup qualifier against Mali in the neighboring West African nation, followed by another significant match against the Central African Republic back home three days later.
