Coach Herbert Addo dies at 66

Former Black Stars coach Herbert Addo has died at the 37 Military Hospital after battling a short illness.

The 66-year-old had been at the 37 Military Hospitals over a week now after his health kept deteriorating.

The family is yet to officially announce the demise of the statesman.

He coached the Black Meteors (U23) (1981-82) and Black Satellites (U20) (1983-84) before graduating to the Black Stars (1983-86/87) and capping it off by winning the SWAG coach of the year award (1987).
