Borussia Dortmund’s Head of Talent Development Otto Addo has been named the first assistant coach for Ghana’s Black Stars.
The 46-year-old agreed on terms with the hierarchy of the Ghana FA following serpentine discussions which largely centered around job security.
Addo, according to reports, wasn’t prepared to forgo his post at Bundesliga giants Dortmund to become the assistant coach for the Black Stars.
Ghanasportsonline.com understands that Addo has been assured by the Ghana FA that he won’t have to quit his role at Dortmund before he is offered the job as Ghana’s assistant coach.
Instead, the terms of his employment will permit him to retain his job at the Bundesliga club and only fly down to Accra to join the squad for preparation towards games when there is an international break.
Clubs are mostly not involved in action during international breaks and Addo can fly down to join Milovan Rajevac, who is expected to be named the new head coach, as well as his No.2 Maxwell Konadu.
Addo, born in Hamburg to Ghanaian parents, was capped 15 times by Ghana at the senior level.
