Explaining the AshGold chaos



AshGold play New Edubiase on Saturday after suddenly seing their season turn on its head following a rather good start - but what's behind all the mess in Obuasi?

AshGold reacted to their recent dip by sacking the men in charge, however, the happenings there have not come in a vacuum. The struggling Miners showed Yaw Acheampong and his assistant Kamara Dini the door, in a decision a management member explained as "necessary".

AshGold drew against Tema Youth on Sunday, continuing their poor streak of one win in five games.

"We always suspected that Yaw Acheampong was not the best for the job, but he initially gave us the benefit of the doubt," a management source tells supersport.com.

But the question has been why Kamara Dini was axed as well.

"We actually wanted Kamara Dini to stay because we felt he was a better option than Yaw Acheampong. Surprisingly he said his loyalty was not to us but to the former head coach, so we had to let him go," the source elaborated.

Why the sack?

The management member confirmed to supersport.com that some of the club's big players did not like Acheampong's style. But were these not the same players under whom Acheampong went on an impressive winning streak upon taking the reins last season?

"It is true that he was the same person, but don't forget that other teams got to know how we played and got smart to Acheampong's tactics. The problem was that he could not vary how he played."

On Saturday, ex-Ghana international Kofi Amoako will be in the dugout until a new man is given the job permanently.
