Premier League club Aduana Stars have denied media reports that the club's acting CEO  unilaterally took the decision to fire head coach Herbert Addo.

The coach and Chief Executive Kofi Manu had a strained relationship after the latter prevented the gaffer from effecting a substitution in a league match against Medeama.

The media in Brong Ahafo claim the personality clash cost the 2009/2010 league winning coach his job.

But the club have moved quickly to dispel that insisting it was collective managerial decision.

''We want to put it on record that the coach was not sacked by Kofi Manu. It was a managerial decision and he was just part of it," Administrative Manager George Jehu said.

''The situation had nothing to do with personal hatred for the coach but he neglected his post and we thought he wasn’t ready to work and so we had to let him leave.

''All the speculations in the media is untrue and we want to address that before it generate into unnecessary tango."

The club have since appointed Romanian Cioaba Aristica as their new coach.
