Under-fire Aduana Stars coach JE Sarpong feels his life is under threat and will quit the club after Â meeting club owner Dormaahene Oseadeyo Agyemang Badu 11.Â
GHANAsoccernet.com revealed on Thursday morning that the ex-Liberty Professionals trainer was considering leaving the Dorma-based side due to mounting criticism over the sideâ€™s unflattering start to the season.
Aduana were held 1-1 at home by Ashantigold on Wednesday in the Ghanaian top-tier to compound the misery of the veteran trainer and he has confirmed he will resign from the club after meeting the life patron of the club.
â€œIf I am the problem of Aduana Stars then I will have to go and have my peaceâ€ Sarpong said
â€œI wouldnâ€™t stand at the point of death because of one team.
â€œI am just waiting for the Chief to come back from his trip abroad and then I tell him my peace of my mind and come to Accra.
â€œThey have played together for four years and they know what to do as a traditional team. The players knew that this team can perform before they started the League so if victories are not forthcoming why the agitations?
â€œLast year AshantiGold beat them here 2-1 there was no agitation, Liberty also beat them in Accra 3-1 there was no agitation. So is it because it is Coach Sarpong?â€
â€œAshantiGold have not lost a match and they are not a small team so if you play a draw with them I donâ€™t see why they should be agitatedâ€
â€œItâ€™s all because some people are behind there trying to get rid of meâ€
â€œThis is not the first time that I am going to leave a job halfway in the season and itâ€™s very painful the way I am been treatedâ€
â€œI am waiting for Nana to return, when he comes I will tell him that Nana thank you very much for offering me the job and then I quitâ€
The experienced trainer replaced Kwabena Ameyaw as the clubâ€™s head coach at the start of the season after leaving second-tier Bibiani Gold Stars.
He could become the second coaching casualty in the top-tier after Dutchman Hans Vander Pluijm resigned from Medeama.
