I didn’t influence Hughton’s appointment – Gabby Otchere-Darko

Renowned Ghanaian lawyer Gabby Otchere-Darko has dismissed claims that he influenced the appointment of Chris Hughton as the new head coach of the Black Stars.

A section of the media in Ghana has accused Mr Otchere-Darko of using his influence to impose Hughton on the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

However,  in a video posted on the Kegyiwa Nankasa YouTube channel, Mr Otchere-Darko, a cousin to Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo and a prominent member of Ghana’s ruling New Patriotic Party, dismissed the allegations by saying despite being friends with Hughton, the GFA solely made the decision.

“Chris is my friend but it is the GFA’s choice and I think that they have made the right choice…,” Mr Otchere-Darko said.

He also commended the GFA for appointing Hughton, stating that he believed it was the right decision.

Hughton has been offered a 21-month contract as Black Stars coach and has been tasked to qualify the four-time African champions for the next AFCON in Ivory Coast next year and possibly win the trophy, which has eluded the country since 1982.

Hughton has started well, claiming four points in his first two matches in charge.
