Addo resigned after the team’s exit from the mundial after the group stage, where they lost to Portugal and Uruguay and beat South Korea.
The team finished bottom of Group H with three points, conceded seven goals and scored five.
In an interview with the state-owned Daily Graphic, GFA President, Kurt Simeon-Okraku said with no immediate assignment for the team, the FA was taking its time to pick the next coach in consultation with all stakeholders.
“We knew that Coach (Otto Addo) will be leaving in six months, so we do have a succession plan,” Mr Addo told a media briefing in Doha last Saturday.
“We’re just going through the process, it’s a process and you know the GFA works with different stakeholders in this decision-making process.
‘’Like I said, first thing is to get our report in quickly, have a meeting with our stakeholders, including the President, the Executive Council and Government and once that is done, we will make a decision on his successor. So yes, we have a plan,” the FA vice-president stated.
Experienced Hughton, a former coach of Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United, served as technical advisor to Otto Addo when he was appointed and is already familiar with the players and has a good working relationship with the FA, the Graphic report added.
