It had earlier been reported that Richard Kingson, the Black Stars’ goalkeepers coach, was on the verge of losing his job following Chris Hughton’s plan to bring changes to the senior national team’s technical team.

Hughton was said to be looking to hire a new goalkeeper’s trainer and video analysts to help his team prepare for matches. However, in response to reports at the outdooring ceremony, GFA spokesperson Henry Asante Twum stated emphatically that Olele and two other assistant coaches will continue to serve the Black stars.
