Highly-rated Medeama coach Samuel Boadu in line for Ghana Under-20 job - report

Published on: 05 March 2019

Highly-rated Medeama coach Samuel Boadu is in line to be named Ghana's Under-20 coach ahead of an impending national teams reshuffle, according to reports in the local media.

The young coach is expected to replace Jimmy Cobblah, who supervised the country's failed 2019 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations held in Niger last month.

Boadu has been tipped by many to take over the wheel of the country's developmental squad after his roller-coaster performance with Premier League side Medeama.

Medeama's gamble to hand the job to the relatively unknown gaffer appears to have paid off after guiding the team to top of the Ghana Premier League table after the first round.

Coach Boadu, who joined from second-tier side Asokwa Deportivo has won several hearts with his philosophy at the Tarkwa-based side.

It's widely believed he's the right man for the job after steering the Mauve and Yellows with relatively unknown names.

Current coach Jimmy Cobblah and his backroom staff are expected to be yanked after the team's disastrous campaign at the continental showpiece in Niger last month.

The Black Satellites failed to qualify for the 2019 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Poland after failing to reach the semis, losing out to regional nemesis Mali.

The Normalisation Committee is expected to ring changes in the various national teams.
