Man Utd could lose Steve McClaren with ex-England manager on shortlist to become Ghana boss

EX-ENGLAND boss Steve McClaren is on the shortlist to become Ghana’s national coach, according to reports.

McClaren has been Manchester United’s assistant manager since last summer.

Steve McClaren has reportedly been shortlisted for the role as Ghana’s national coachRex

But the 61-year-old could now deal Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag a blow by taking charge of the Black Stars.

He is said to be on a three-man shortlist to succeed Otto Addo, who quit after Ghana’s early exit at last month’s World Cup finals.

McClaren spent 16 months as Three Lions boss, but was sacked after England failed to qualify for Euro 2008.

He has also managed Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest, Derby County, Newcastle and QPR.

The Yorkshireman has also worked abroad, coaching FC Twente and Wolfsburg.

McClaren’s rivals for the Ghana job are understood to be Chris Hughton and Hector Cuper.

Former Newcastle, Brighton and Nottingham Forest boss Hughton has worked as a technical advisor to the Black Stars in the past year.

The ex-Tottenham and Republic of Ireland defender, 64, whose father is Ghanaian, has also managed Birmingham and Norwich.


Argentine Cuper, 67, has previously coached Valencia, Inter Milan and four national teams.

Over 60 coaches are reported to have applied for the job.

The Ghana FA is expected to make an appointment by the end of January, with the team due to face Angola in two Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in March.
