I have difficulty pressuring young players to perform – Otto Addo

Otto Addo has revealed that he has difficulty with putting pressure on young players but added that development takes time.

The Borussia Dortmund talent coach said this after Ghana’s elimination from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar last Friday.

The Black Stars, who were making their fourth appearance at the Mundial finished bottom of Group H after losing their must-win game 2-0 against Uruguay.

According to him, the next Black Stars coach should be given enough time to build and develop the national team.

“When a new coach comes, I’ll expect that he is given the chance to develop and to allow the team to grow,” he said, as quoted by Graphic Sports.

“Sometimes, it takes losses to grow and the best sportsmen have learned to turn their failures into success stories.

“I have difficulties in putting pressure on young players. Everyone knows that we have a good team that, hopefully, if we continue developing would get better. But we should not expect anything today because development is a process and takes time,” he added.

Ghana recorded one win and two defeats at the 22nd edition of the Mundial.
