Under-fire AshantiGold FC Chief Executive Officer has stated that he will not succumb to pressure from the supporters and leave the club until his employers, the board of directors of the club axe him.
Several sections of the ‘Shafts’, supporters wing of the Obuasi-based club have been breathing down on the necks of Fianoo to resign on his role as CEO of the club after 9 (nine) unsuccessful seasons in charge but Mr Fianoo claims the allegations of the fans are baseless.
“Am not ready to resign so they should direct their concern to the board, I did it in 2008 and resigned but they came back for me when they were last on the league table so I don’t see the reason to resign”. Fianoo told Angel FM.
“When they were recalling me in 2008 they set a target for me that I should be in the top 4 but after that the club has placed second on three consecutive occasions and it was only last season that were were sixth and even with that the board and management will understand that there were some challenges in the team”.
“These are the same supporters who called us to a meeting at a time that we had played nine matches unbeaten and told us that they don’t understand why we are unbeaten in 9 matches but yet a point adrift of Kotoko, These fans suggested to the technical team to start using some of the old players, the coach obliged and we started losing so who do they want to resign”?
Ashgold lie 5th on the Ghana Premier League table with 34 points, 16 points behind leaders Asante Kotoko
