Otto Addo walks away from work in Ghana following Friday’s World Cup exit.

“It was clear that I was leaving after the World Cup. My family and I see our future in Germany. I like my role at Dortmund,” the 47-year-old, who also works for the club’s youth teams, told reporters. Borussia Dortmund.

“Even if we had become world champions, that would have been the end of it. This is a decision for my family.”

Addo is still under contract with Dortmund, which allowed him to manage Ghana at the same time. He only took over in February.
