Chief Executive Officer of AshantiGold Frederick Acheampong has confirmed the club is looking for a new coach after it sacked Charles Akonnor.
“It’s true that Ashgold has parted ways with head CK Akonnor,” He said on Happy FM.
“We appreciate all his good works for the club but sometimes things like these happen.”
”The reasons for his sacking will be made known to the public very soon.”
Deputy coach Yakubu Mambo has been placed in charge until further notice.
Although Acheampong didn’t give reasons for Akonnor’s shock exit, Joy Sports understands the former Ghana international has paid the price for his insubordination.
Last week, the 44-year-old gaffer was accused of dereliction of duty after failing to supervise the team’s training session.
The former Premier League champions were left angered by the attitude of the coach after he failed to report for training.
However, he was busy working as a TV punditry in the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The club wielded the disciplinary axe by putting him in on ice.
Akunnor was appointed midway through last term with the Obuasi-based club one point above the drop zone, but the former Black Stars captain was able to transform their fortunes as they maintained their league status.
He leaves the Miners lying second on the league log after the first round of the suspended Zylofon Cash Premier League.
