Although the nomination of the 64-year-old is intriguing, he is unlikely to succeed if there is interference in his work, the speaker said.
“We shouldn’t rush the coach because he is now going to build his team, we shouldn’t put him under unnecessary pressure so he can make the right call-up,” Dan Quaye told the media, as quoted by Footballghana.
“Ghana is blessed with talents but the only problem we have is interference. So if he has been given the job, he should be given the opportunity to work freely without any interference.
“I don’t have any problem with Hughton’s appointment but if his job is interfered in he will not succeed. I believe he has what it takes to do well if he is not influenced.”On Sunday evening, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) named Hughton as the new Black Stars coach. The FA’s statement said the former Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur manager will be assisted by George Boateng and Mas-Ud Didi Dramani.
Hughton has held managerial positions at various levels during his career, including time spent working for various managers at Tottenham, where he combined his managerial duties with acting as the Republic of Ireland’s assistant coach.
He was appointed as Newcastle United’s first-team coach by Kevin Keegan in 2008. He was appointed interim manager in September of that year after Keegan left.
After Newcastle was demoted to the Championship, he was later named the club’s permanent manager, and under his leadership, they were immediately promoted back to the Premier League
.Hughton’s management career has been outstanding thus far, and he has since led Birmingham City, Norwich City, Brighton and Hove Albion, and Nottingham Forest.
