Chris Hughton Talks About Kumasi Fans : Ghana head coach Chris Hughton has underlined the importance of the strong Kumasi support for the Black Stars ahead of Thursday’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Angola.
Hughton is no stranger to the Babayara atmosphere as he was there when the Black Stars played Nigeria at the same venue in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Play-Offs in March 2022.
The former Brighton and Holve Albion manager takes charge of his first match since becoming new Ghana head coach and he has spoken about the vociferous Kumasi supporters.
“I have been to Kumasi three times in the last four days so I know the environment as well as I can do. Of course I was involved with the team when we came here for the Nigeria game and I know the difference it made to the team.” , Chris Hughton said at the pre-match press conference.
“It’s a very passionate support; it’s a very vocal support and any team that wants to do well, wants a big crowd behind them and this I am quite sure will happen. Whatever the numbers are, I know we have a very vocal crowed but I we also know that as players we have the responsibility to return this.
And the supporters must enjoy what they see and mostly we can never guarantee but mostly they want to see a team that is giving everything to get the results.” , he added.
