The Ghana Football Association apologize to Ghanaians after the Black Stars’ poor performance at the AFCON.

The Black Stars of Ghana suffered a humiliating early exit at the 34th edition of the Africa Cup of Nations which is still ongoing in Ivory Coast.

At the Africa Cup of Nations, The Black Stars of Ghana were paired in Group B alongside the Pharaohs of Egypt, the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde, and the Mambas of Mozambique. Shockingly, The Black Stars of Ghana failed to qualify from the group stages after accumulating just two points in three matches.

Ghana lost to the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde and drew with both Egypt and Mozambique to finish third in the group.


On Tuesday, January 30, 2024, the Ghana Football Association officially apologized to Ghanaians for the shambolic performance in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. Also, the Ghana Football Association assures Ghanaians that measures are being taken to identify and solve the problem at hand.


After Ghana’s exit from the Africa Cup of Nations, the technical team headed by Chris Hughton was dissolved with immediate effects and the Ghana Football Association has set up a five-member committee mandated to find a new coach for the Black Stars of Ghana in the next three weeks.


Below is the Ghana Football Association release on the Africa Cup of Nation exit:


“The Ghana Football Association extends our sincerest apologies to the good people of Ghana and all stakeholders for the recent disappointing performance of the senior national team, the Black Stars at the Africa Cup of Nations Cote D’Ivoire 2023.


We understand the disappointment and frustration that such results can bring to our passionate football-loving nation. Our team’s performance fell short of the high expectations we all share, and we take full responsibility for the disappointment.


Following a meeting of the Executive Council of the Association and Chairmen of the RFAs on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, the GFA wishes to assure all stakeholders that the requisite steps are being taken to address the issues at hand, and a thorough review of the team’s strategies, training, compensation, and overall structure is underway.


We value the unwavering support of our stakeholders, and we commit to working tirelessly with you to ensure a stronger and more competitive team. Your loyalty and passion are the driving forces behind our efforts to rebuild and elevate the standard of Ghanaian football.


We appreciate your understanding during this challenging time and remain dedicated to restoring the pride and success we all desire for the Ghana Black Stars. Together, we will emerge stronger and more resilient.


Thank you for your continued support.”  GFA COMMUNICATIONS
