Ghana Football Association (GFA) have sacked Chris Hughton as coach of the Black Stars following their embarrassing first-round exit from the AFCON 2023.

The four-time African Champions who were looking to end a 42-year AFCON trophy drought, suffered a humiliating exit on Tuesday.

This was after Ghana's 2 points weren't enough to see them through to the next phase of the competition after drawing two games and losing one.

A statement from the country's football governing body said Chris Hughton is no longer the head coach of the team and also the technical team of the Black Stars have been dissolved.

"The Ghana Football Association wishes to announce that Chris Hughton has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the senior National team with immediate effect.

The Executive Council has also taken a decision to dissolve the technical team of the Black Stars.

The Ghana Football Association will in the coming days provide a roadmap on the future direction of the Black Stars."
