The head coach of Ashgold Bashir Hayford has attributed the release of twins Alhassan and Fuseini Nuhu to their poor performances over last season.

Following a highly publicized switch from relegated New Edubiase United much was expected from the brothers at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium as Ashgold made a poor defense of the league title.

However, according to Hayford the club decided to let them go after only one season because of their performances.

“The decision to part way with them was purely based on performance. At a point in the season when I realized their abysmal display, I called them and spoke to them.

"Their total performance was very low. We have software that analyse the output of players and their performance was shockingly awful.

"Fuseini who is the striker had 48% whiles Alhasan had 46% in terms of performance. They were part of the players that participated in Africa and they failed to live up to expectations”, Hayford told Kuamsi based Angel FM.

The experienced coach told the duo to take take their dismissal in good fate and view it as an opportunity to improve their careers.

Hayford advised them to stop peddling falsehood that he dislikes them.

They played a combined 52 games in 60 games for the Elephants last season – with Fuseini playing 28 games and Alhassan playing 24.
