Ghana Premier League side AshantiGold could sack their assistant coach Thomas Duah following the appointment of Ernest Thompson-Quartey as head coach.
Thompson-Quartey who was appointed this month has requested that management grant him permission to bring in his two assistants.
The former Ebusua Dwarfs is uninterested in working with Duah who was interim coach for the club in the second half of last season and guided them to the MTN FA Cup final which they lost on penalties to Hearts of Oak.
He believes bringing in his ‘own people’ will help him achieve his target of building a formidable team that can fight for trophies.
The management are yet to respond to the request. Should Thompson-Qartey’s request be granted, Duah will leave the club.
Thompson-Quartey signed a two-year contract with the Miners ahead of the 2021/22 season which will commence in late October.
