Ghana head coach Otto Addo has decided to resign from his role as the Head Coach of the Ghana Black Stars.
The 47-year-old former Ghana international replaced the sacked Milovan Rajevac in February, initially as interim boss, and was given a deal until the end of December.
The decision has been made as Otto Addo will continue as assistant coach at Borussia Dortmund.
“I always said if we qualified for the World Cup I’d resign afterwards, even if we were world champions,” he said.
“My family see our future in Germany.”
“Football is beautiful, sometimes it is ugly. It is ugly for us today. We have to learn and I’m very sure we will learn from this in the future,” he said.
Addo was born in Hamburg to Ghanaian parents and has spent most of his playing and coaching career in Germany.
Both Ghana and Uruguay crashed out of the 2022 World Cup despite a 2-0 victory in favour of the South American.
The Black Stars were eliminated after Andre Ayew missed a penalty in the 21st minute before Giorgian de Arrascaeta hit a first-half double to put Uruguay 2-1 up.
It looked like it would be enough for Uruguay to qualify for the last 16 until Hwang Hee-chan netted a 91st-minute winner to send South Korea through, leaving Luis Suarez to end the tournament in tears.
