David Duncan is currently the leading contender to become coach of Berekum Chelsea, can exclusively reveal.

Indirect contact has been established between the club and the ex Ghana U-23 coach to replace Steve Pollack whose contract was terminated by mutual consent following Sunday’s 1-0 home loss to Medeama SC.

And after a plethora of names keep being juggled in the Ghana media as possible replacements, Duncan has emerged as the most suitable candidate for the post.

“We are looking at some options but clearly some coaches have been overruled due to their running contracts with other clubs,” Chelsea Ceo Nana Kwame Nketia exclusively told

“Coach Bashir Hayford (whose name has popped up) is currently under contract at Medeama even though he is on leave and therefore that is a no go area.

“Duncan on the other hand has no obligation with any club in that regard and therefore could be an option for us.”

The champions who have handed interim charge of the team to their U-20 coach Annoh Walker however insist they are not in a hurry to find a substantive coach.

“We would like to take our time to enable us get the right man and therefore we are not in the haste to make the appointment,” Nketia added.

Dutchman Hans Van Der Plyum has also been named as a contender for the vacant job.
