Sarfo Castro cites personal reasons for leaving Wa All Stars

Published on: 08 May 2018

Former Wa All Stars Coach Sarfo Castro says he left the club due to personal reasons and not because of  the club's poor performance. 

The former Okwahu United manager tendered in his resignation on Monday following Wa All Stars' 1-1 draw with West Africa Football Academy on Sunday.

Sarfo Castro was appointed Coach of the Northern Blues after Mumuni Sokpari was shown the exit door due to the poor start to the Premier League by the former Champions.

However, Coach Castro could not turn the tides either with Wa All Stars languishing at the buttom of the table with just five points from 9 games.

Sarfo Castro in an interview admitted he left the club due to personal reasons.

"Yes I have resigned as Wa All Stars Coach but this is normal. I resigned due to personal reasons. It is personal," he told Zylofon FM.

"I don't want to talk about any other thing but this is personal," he added.

The veteran Coach added he has had some wonderful relationship with the club and did not resign due to pressure from management. He went on to add there is absolutely no pressure from the club's president Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi.

"Yes he is a human being like us, and he does not put pressure on us and he is not the type of owner who is on your neck all the time. I like him because he provides you with what you need it," he concluded.

Wa All Stars won the Ghana Premier League three season ago but have lost some of their best players leading to the club struggling in the current campaign.

The Northern Blues lost the core of their title winning team which included Maxwell Baako, goalkeeper Richard Ofori and Richard Arthur who returned this season.
