Ghana Premier League: Legon Cities FC confirm Goran Barjaktarevic sacking

Published on: 25 November 2020

Ghana Premier League side, Legon Cities have announced the sacking of head coach, Goran Barjaktarevic.

The Bosnian has struggled to make an impact during his time with the Royals, losing his opening two games in the ongoing 2020/21 Ghana Premier League campaign.

Barjaktarevic has been at the helm for 11 months after taking over from John Paintsil who failed to meet the league criteria of having a CAF License A certificate.

The 51-year-old won just 3 games out of 15 before the coronavirus pandemic led to the cancellation of the 2019/2020 season.

He managed a win rate of 17.6% in his 17 games in charge.

Former Hearts of Oak Head Coach Kim Grant and former Ghana U23 coach Ibrahim Tanko are among the front runners for the vacant position.
