After forty-two years of an illustrious coaching career, Herbert Addo decided to drop his coaching tools last week, but he is ready to return if he is tempted with a $5,000 monthly salary.
Herbert Addo began his coaching in 1974, and he has coached almost the traditional clubs in the country to achieve success.
Last week, after Inter Allies 1-1 stalemate against Techiman City at the Tema Sports Stadium, an emergency meeting was held, and the veteran told his employers he wanted to take a break from the game.
But acording of him, there have been negative reports about his departure from the Eleven Is To One by people who do not like him. He said he decided to leave the scene because he doesn't want to work under pressure.
"I have been in this field for long time and I know human nature. I know that not everybody likes me, so I knew people will come out with funny stories. These things don't worry me," Mr. Addo told Tv3 Network.
"You can believe it, you can take it. I have decided that if I am out of the scene, I will be more relaxed because there won't be any pressure and I can do what I want if I can, that is why I decided to resign.
However, the former Hearts of Oak boss will return to the technical bench to lead any club who is ready to pay him $ 5,000 a month as his salary.
"But if anybody is prepared to pay me $ 5,000 a month, I think that might kick me to come back to the scene. Not GH¢ 5,000, I want $ 5,000. If it comes through, fantastic, I will be back and that will make my retirement even better after retirement," he said.
Herbert Addo returned to Inter Allies before the start of the 2015-16 Ghana Premier League (GPL), after he was sacked by Hearts of Oak.
