Speaking to the media in a press conference this evening, Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe blames the current crisis the team is facing on Kosta Papic whom he believes is fuelling all the current unrest in the club.
“At a Board meeting, the Coach stated the following specific reasons for his resignation, lack of trust from the players, player’s refusal to abide by his instruction, divisions in the playing body, lack of corporation from the players and his inability to turn the situation around.
The board subsequently met with the playing body and enquires from them what their opinions are on the situation especially regarding the poor performance.
Their position was Favoritism by the head Coach, fielding his favorite players even if they were injured, lack of unity in the team and failure by the head coach to maintain the winning team.
The players went on to say that consequence to the above behavior and conduct of the Head Coach, they felt nervous playing and were generally not happy. The players informed the board that they had earlier met the Coach and informed him that the problem of the team was him, as to his response to them; they said he did not say anything.
