Medeama SC struggling due to Samuel Baodu's exit - Club PRO Patrick Akoto

Published on: 16 June 2021

Communications Director for Medeama SC, Patrick Akoto has admitted the club is struggling due to the sudden departure of Samuel Boadu.

The Yellow and Mauve after 29 matches played sit on the 4th position on the league log with 46 points.

Boadu resigned from the club unexpectedly prior to the second half of the season.

He was then appointed as the head coach of Hearts of Oak, replacing Kosta Papic.

Boadu has been able to engineer the Phobians to the top of the league log after 29 matches played despite the torrid start of the season.

And according to Akoto, Medeama were not expecting Boadu to leave anytime soon stressing that his sudden departure has affected the club.

"We didn't plan for a new coach, he (Samuel Boadu) woke up one day after a game and told us he has resigned," he told Kumasi based Otec FM.

"Do you know the psychological trauma he took the club through?

"We were forced to go and hire two coaches.

"A lot of things went on and it has really affected the club because the timing was wrong.

"That is why the club has resolved from the board that the matter must see its logical conclusion.

"We haven't seen the last of it, we hope it's become successful at the appeal," he added.

Medeama named Yaw Preko as Samuel Boadu's replacement.
