I hope players adapt to my playing philosophy – Ghana coach Otto Addo ahead of Nigeria friendly game

The newly reinstated coach of the Black Stars, Otto Addo, is optimistic about the integration of fresh talent into his team’s playing style ahead of their friendly showdown with Nigeria.

Ghana is set to clash with their rivals at the Stade de Marrakesh later tonight in a highly anticipated friendly match, with kick-off slated for 16:00 GMT.

Addo, who recently announced his 26-man squad, has included several new faces expected to make their debut against the Super Eagles.

Speaking ahead of the match, the former Ghanaian international expressed his enthusiasm for returning to the helm while stressing the importance of the newcomers embracing his coaching philosophy.

He anticipates an exhilarating encounter against the runners-up of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

“I am happy to be back, it’s been quite interesting because if you compare the squad now to the squad at the AFCON, there have been a lot of replacements because of injuries,” he told the Ghana FA website.

“We have had like seven/eight new players in camp with less experience but with a bright future in front of them and I think it was quite interesting to see them on the pitch to take in good positions against the ball and with the ball, adapting to my philosophy and my style of play so I am really looking forward to tomorrow.

“Especially for the young boys to show their quality and then with the combination with those who have experience with those who have been here for some time to guide them and I think it will be an interesting match,” he added.
