2023 AFCON: Ghana Fires Hughton Following AFCON Elimination

Following Ghana’s confirmed elimination from the Africa Cup of Nations, Chris Hughton was fired as coach, the football association of the nation announced in a statement on Tuesday night.

Ghana’s outside hope of a spot in the round of sixteen was dashed on Tuesday when results from Groups C and D eliminated them from contention. Ghana finished third in Group B at the tournament in the Ivory Coast following a 2-2 draw with Mozambique on Monday.

“The Ghana Football Association wishes to announce that Chris Hughton has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the senior national team with immediate effect. The executive council has also decided to dissolve the technical team of the Black Stars,” the statement said.

“The Ghana Football Association will, in the coming days, provide a roadmap on the future direction of the Black Stars,” it added.
