Ghana coach Otto Addo has stated that his decisions regarding the national team are his own.

Concerns have been raised about player selection interference in the Black Stars team, prompting Addo to clarify that he makes all the decisions with his technical staff but he has the final word.

In an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Chat, Coach Otto Addo revealed there are no Political or football administrators interference in his decision making on team selection.

“Yeah sure, it’s my own decision, whatever I do here in the national team surely sometimes we discuss things with our technical staff but on the decision we make for players and on the field at the end I have the last words and if it wouldn’t be like that I’ll never come here” he said.

However, he praised the Ghana Football Association (GFA) for not interfering in his decision-making process for the Black Stars team.

“And I’ll thank the GFA, they’ve never interfered in my selection. They left me alone in my decision and I think that’s the best way it can work because if there are too interference in this and that it is not what only happens in Ghana, it’s normal sometimes like in Europe”

Otto Addo, whose first spell saw him qualify Ghana to the World Cup in Qatar, has signed a 34 month contract in his second stint with an option for a further 24 months.
