Borussia Dortmund assistant coach Otto Addo has agreed a new Ghana contract and is set to lead the Black Stars at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, MX24 Sports understands.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is expected to make the announcement in the coming weeks.

Otto Addo took over from Milovan Rajevac who was sacked after a humiliating exit at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon and managed to qualify Ghana to the global showpiece at the expense of Nigeria in the two-legged final play-offs.

The 46-year-old became first Ghanaian to have represented Ghana at the World Cup and also qualified the team to the mundial as a coach.

Ghana were handed a tricky task to play Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea in Group H of the global showpiece event.

The Black Stars will open their tournament at the 2022 World Cup by taking on Portugal before playing Uruguay and then wrap up their group campaign with a clash with South Korea.

Ghana will be making their fourth appearance at the World Cup after missing the previous competition held in Russia four years ago.
