The Ghana Football Association is interested in hiring former Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel as the next Black Stars coach, according to Asempa FM Sports.
The German coach is out of work after being fired by English Premier League powerhouse Chelsea earlier this season for poor performance.
Tuchel is a top target for the Ghana Football Association, having previously managed French Ligue 1 powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain.
The Ghana FA has nominated the former Chelsea coach for the vacant Black Stars coaching position left vacant by Otto Addo’s retirement following the World Cup, according to sources.
The Ghana Football Association wants him to take over because they believe he is the best candidate for the job with the Black Stars.
Uruguay’s 2-0 victory over Ghana in their Group H finale prevented the Black Stars from exacting retribution for their quarterfinal defeat in the 2010 World Cup, but La Celeste’s exciting success at the 2022 World Cup came at a high cost.
Despite Uruguay’s victory, South Korea’s 2-1 win over Portugal in the comparable group stage decider allowed them to overtake both Uruguay and Ghana late in the game, ensuring that they would advance to the last 16 and send both of these teams home.
The build-up to the match was overshadowed by Luis Suarez’s handball at the end of extra time in their 2010 quarterfinal meeting.
Asamoah Gyan’s error cost Ghana dearly 12 years ago, but captain Andre Ayew, the only surviving member of the 2010 team, was unable to avenge it.
