Chris Hughton, the former Brighton manager recently appointed as the head coach of the Ghana national team, the Black Stars, has sadly lost his father.
The former Brighton manager was hired two weeks ago and was supposed to be introduced before March, but he stayed in the UK after his father passed away for a while. Hughton will now likely travel to Ghana the following week for his unveiling.
This is according to Communications Director Henry Asante Twum, who disclosed the sad development to TV3 Ghana.
The news about Chris Hughton's father is the second enormous tragedy that has hit Ghana football in quick succession, as it follows the demise of Ghanaian winger Christian Atsu, who died in an earthquake in Turkey.
