Addo has previously successfully coached top talents such as Giovanni Reyna, Jude Bellingham, and Youssoufa Moukoko.

Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho and Manchester City’s recent signing Erling Haaland were also under Addo’s tutelage.

Addo, who was born in Hamburg, started as Dortmund’s talent trainer on July 1, 2019.

After Lucien Favre was fired in 2020, he took over as interim assistant coach and won the German Cup with Edin Terzic and Sebastian Geppert.

After qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, Addo was appointed as permanent Black Stars coach, and he will be in charge of the team in Qatar.
