The Executive Council member has shed more light on the race for West African side’s coaching position.
The Ghana Football Association does not formally acknowledge Chris Hughton’s interest in the vacant Black Stars coaching job, Executive Council member Tony Aubynn has stated.
Former Newcastle United and Brighton and Hove Albion boss Hughton has emerged as a possible candidate to replace Milovan Rajevac as Ghana boss, a quest championed by leading members of the Government of Ghana.
The GFA, meanwhile, hold a preference for Borussia Dortmund assistant coach Otto Addo, the latter having held the role of an assistant coach during Rajevac’s brief reign.
“The pedigree of Chris [Hughton] is not in doubt. At the FA, I haven’t seen anything on Chris Hughton yet,” Aubynn, who recently threw his support behind Ado, told Joy FM.
“There have been no discussions or meetings about him, but the source is the media.
“As part of the FA’s council, we deal with what is brought before us, and then we have a look at it.
“As far as I am personally concerned, we haven’t seen any expression of interest in the Black Stars from Hughton.”
