‘Incoming’ Ghana coach Chris Hughton spotted with Hudson-Odoi’s father in Accra

While he is ticked to be the favourite to replace Milovan Rajevac as Ghana national team coach, Chris Hughton has met Callum Hudson-Odoi’s father at the Larbiadi beach hotel in Ghana.

The move may be an attempt of the sixty-three-year-old Hughton to convince the Chelsea star to play for Ghana.

An exclusive Citi Sports report noted that Hughton arrived in Ghana on Friday and it appears the former Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United boss has already shifted into gear as he tries to lure the many foreign players of Ghanaian descent to play for the Black Stars.

The report added that the biggest attraction of Hughton, whose father is Ghanaian, is believed to be his ability to lure Ghanaian players born abroad to represent the Black Stars with Hudson-Odoi and Brighton defender Tariq Lamptey the biggest prospects.
