Ex-Ghana midfielder, Emmanuel Frimpong has called for the needed support for interim Black Stars coach, Otto Addo to succeed.
The German born ex-Ghana international was handed the Black Stars job for the two crucial 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification tie against West African rivals, Nigeria.
The Borussia Dortmund assistant coach steered the four time African champions to a stalemate in the first leg at the Baba Yara Stadium on Friday, March 25.
The second leg will be at the Moshood Abiola Stadium on March 29 and Frimpong believes Otto Addo needs the necessary support to deliver.
“I’m not a big fan of foreign coaches coming over and being our coaches.
“You know as a Ghanaian, I wish Otto Addo all the luck that he needs.
“I think for his first game I thought he did really well because I really like the balance in midfield between [Thomas] Partey and Mohammed Kudus.
“I thought Kudus in the first half he had touches and he is very very good on the ball but he didn’t really show his talent.
“In the second half, Kudus was fantastic, I thought Partey was quiet, he made one or two mistakes but is still one of our important players.
“But you know, there is so much to say about the players today.
“Coming back from the Africa Cup of Nations and the backlash that happened after, I thought today was a very positive way for the performance.
“We didn’t win but we can take a lot of positives.” Emmanuel Frimpong said on GTV Sports Plus.
The 46-year-old is assisted by former Asante Kotoko coach Mas-Ud Dramani and Dutch-born former Aston Villa midfielder of Ghanaian descent, George Boateng with Chris Hughton as a technical advisor.
Ghana need a scoring draw or a win to stand a chance of booking a slot in Qatar later this year.
Ghana missed out on the 2018 edition held in Russia with Nigeria eying a fourth consecutive appearance.
