We have to improve in our defensive positioning, says Black Stars coach Otto Addo

Black Stars head coach, Otto Addo has admitted that the defence of the team needs to improve.

According to him, the defence needs to do better in terms of the positioning of players and closing of gaps.

Speaking after Ghana’s 2-2 draw with Uganda, Coach Otto Addo said he will work to make the team better.

“We conceded too many goals that is right and I think the defensive line as they played today’s game and the other games haven’t played together and you could see the communication amongst the players was not as good as we wanted to have. Truly it’s difficult if key players in that role are missing. But like I said, I got a lot to see today and I also saw who can be an option and maybe who is not.

“We will be monitoring the players in the upcoming months and we will make the right conclusions for our upcoming matches in June. We have to improve in our defensive positioning, closing gaps, recognizing situations and taking the right decisions defensively. Like I said counter-pressing, closing gaps, defending in the last third and passing lanes was not that good but we have to work on it and do better next time,” Coach Otto Addo indicated.

Ghana will return to action in the June international break to face Mali and Central African Republic in the qualifiers for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
