Coach Yusif Abubakar will remain with Heart of Lions despite the side's relegation from the countryâ€™s top-flight, manager Yashin Laryea has confirmed.
Although his contract isnâ€™t due to expire until 2016, the experienced trainer decided to take some time out to consider his options.
But he has now moved to quell any fears to the contrary and reiterated his desire to stay in charge despite their demotion.
The clubâ€™s General Manager Yashin Laryea has revealed the former Hearts of Oak tactician will remain with the club.
â€œHe has a contract which expires next year and so he will stay with us,â€ he said
â€œWe have no plans of dispensing with his services and he has given us his word that he will stay.
â€œIt was a painful experience for all of us but we have to go back and fight back to the Premier League
â€œThere are strong teams to contend with like Great Olympics and others and weâ€™ll need all our top arsenals to achieve our ultimate aim.â€
Lions got relegated on the final day of the season after losing 4-2 at New Edubiase.
