Borussia Dortmund assistant coach Addo backed for Ghana top job

The former winger has been seen as a good candidate to replace CK Akonnor

Former Fenerbahce man Sam Johnson believes Borussia Dortmund and ex-Black Stars winger Otto Addo will make a good coach for the national team.

The West Africans are hunting for a new boss following the dismissal of CK Akonnor for a run of uninspiring performances on Monday.

Addo, who represented Ghana at the 2000 Africa Cup of Nations and the 2006 World Cup, has been heavily linked to the Black Stars vacant position, as have Ghana-born former Netherlands midfielder George Boateng and Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac, who coached Ghana at the 2010 World Cup.
