Elmina Sharks Football Club has with immediate effect, terminated the employment of Mr. Kobina Amissah as a coach of the Elmina based Club.
A letter signed by the legal unit of Groupe Nduom, owners of the club stated among others that coach Amissah has close to a month been unable to sign a new agreed contract which sought to re-assign him to the enviable role of Technical Director of the Football Academy for Elmina Sharks FC and Sea Lions FC. Coach Amissah was served notice of the club’s decision to re-assign him to the role of Technical Director of clubs’ Football Academy in a letter dated October 25th, 2017.
After negotiations in January, he was given a new offer and he accepted the offer in principle, pending the determination of a request he made seeking an extension of the contract term from the offered one (1) year to five (5) years.
Coach Amissah was duly paid in January but has still not shown a commitment to his new role. With the contract of the new role unsigned, and noting the inconveniences being caused with the delay, the new offer is revoked, and the old contract terminated.
