Former vice president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Fred Pappoe wants Black Stars head coach Otto Addo to be kept at the post for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
His backing for the tactician comes after the recent calls from a section of Ghanaians for the coach to be sacked for the poor performance of the national team in the friendlies against Brazil and Nicaragua in September.
Speaking to Akoma FM in an interview, Fred Pappoe said it will be a mistake if the Ghana FA should sack Coach Otto Addo.
In his view, the coach is good and must be supported as he gears up to take the Black Stars to the mundial in Qatar.
“The mistake Hearts of Oak made that led to their defeat to AS Bamako is the same thing people want the FA to commit, forty days to the World Cup and some people want the FA to change the coach, and bring who?
“Like we did going into the 2006 world cup, the friendly matches are being played not necessarily for results but to look out for individual performance and how systems will look for the coaches. We should not confuse ourselves by calling for the sack of the coach due to the performance of the team from a friendly match,” Fred Pappoe indicated.
The experienced football administrator added, “We should not be quick to pass judgment on whether Otto Addo is good or bad, to me he is good. We cannot change him at this time, for me that will be suicidal.”
Currently, coach Otto Addo is working with his assistants to put together a squad that will represent Ghana at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
