Black Stars: Chris Houghton Responds To Getting A Statue If Ghana Wins The Next AFCON



Black Stars head coach, Chris Houghton is at the brink of qualifying the Black Stars for next year’s AFCON that will be hosted in the Ivory Coast, with the team requiring just a draw in the last qualifying game against Central African Republic to confirm their place at the next continental tournament.
The 64-year-old former Everton manager is, however, looking way beyond mere qualification, with his main target focused on ending Ghana’s four-decade-long AfCON trophy drought.
Speaking in a recent interview with TalkSport,Chris Hughton was asked about the possibility of being built a statue if he manages to lead Black Stars to a first AFCON title since 1982 and he was modest about his response as expected.
He started by saying, it’s about getting to the AfCON first, but once he gets the team there he would want them to perform well.
Houghton revealed that one thing he has observed during his travels with the team is that, the levels of the African countries now have witness a massive improvement.
According to him, he thinks because of infrastructure, so many of the African players are now playing at good levels, good clubs with good structure and hence he gas no doubt the level of the AFCON will continue to improve.
Meanwhile, former captain of the Black Stars team, Stephen Appiah believes Chris Houghton needs a little more time to implement his ideas in Black Stars.
According to Stephen Appiah, Ghanaians and the Ghana Football Association (GFA) must exercise patience as they anticipate getting good results from the 64-year-old football adept in his quest to turn things around.
