Mohammed Polo critical of Otto Addo’s appointment as Black Stars coach

Ghanaian football legend Mohammed Polo has raised concerns over the recent appointment of Otto Addo as the new coach of the Black Stars, likening the decision to bringing in a “latecomer to the game.”

Polo, a pivotal figure in Ghana’s football history, expressed his disappointment with the sidelining of former players from the 1970s and 1980s and questioned the selection of the 43-year-old Addo.

He highlighted the achievements of Kwesi Appiah, the previous coach, stating, “I feel sad but it’s an opportunity. We saw what Kwesi Appiah did, but for some reason, they had to sideline him.”

While acknowledging Addo’s capabilities, Polo stressed the importance of exploring internal coaching options before turning to external appointments.

“Now we are going to try somebody. We are giving Otto Addo a trial. I’m not saying he’s not good but don’t we have people in the system to give them trials?” he remarked.

Polo’s sentiments reflect a broader conversation within Ghanaian football circles about the balance between honoring past contributions and seeking fresh perspectives for the national team’s leadership.
