Ashanti Gold SC have appointed Isaac Kofi Sarfo as their new head coach

The interim head coach of the team replaces Milovan Cirkovic, who parted ways with the club due to ill-health after three and a half months in charge.

The Chief Executive of Ashgold, Mr Emmanuel Frimpong, told the Daily Graphic yesterday that his management had so much faith in the new coach, describing him as an "outstanding local coach" whom was expected to turn the club's fortunes around.

The ‘Soccer Miners' lads parted with their Serbian coach on mutual terms last month due to health issues, after which the club's management turned to assistant coaches Sarfo and Duah to take charge of their league matches with against WAFA and Aduana Stars.

However, Sarfo had a baptism of fire in his first match in charge fully as Ashgold's were thumped 4-1 by Dreams FC at Dawu on February 25 and slipped to the 11th position on the league log.

Sarfo's appointment was a departure from the club's initial preference for expatriate coaches, having begun the season with an Italian Roberto Landi who quit the job unceremoniously last October and was replaced by Cirkovic the following month.

Ashgold will take on Premier League's bottom club Inter Allies on Friday on matchday 17 of the Ghana Premier League.
