Ghana's Black Stars head coach, Chris Hughton, has expressed uncertainty about his future with the team following a disappointing 2-2 draw against Mozambique in their last Group B match at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
The draw leaves the Black Stars in a precarious position, on the verge of elimination with only two points and slim chances of securing a spot as one of the best third-placed teams.
When questioned about the possibility of resigning, Hughton responded, “I am not thinking about anything else for the moment.”
Expressing frustration with the team's performance, Hughton acknowledged the responsibility he bears as the head coach.
“I was angry and frustrated as anyone else because I am the head coach and I carry that responsibility, but I am not speaking about my future but only the game.”
Hughton highlighted the fundamental mistakes that cost the team crucial points, especially after being two goals ahead. “In a game, we didn't perform at the level expected.
Our energy levels were not the highest. But when you get a position of being 2-0 up, you don't expect to concede in the way we did,” he stated.
As the Black Stars face the possibility of an early AFCON exit, Hughton's future with the team remains uncertain, with decisions likely to unfold in the aftermath of the tournament.
