Ashgold sack Yaw Acheampong and his assistant

The management of the Obuasi-based club have heeded the call of the fans to get rid of Yaw Acheampong and his assistant

AshantiGold have parted ways with head coach, Yaw Acheampong and his assistant, Kamara Dini.

The decision was taken by the board of the club on Tuesday afternoon after immense pressure from the fans to get rid of the head coach.

The former Real Sociedad player becomes the third coaching casualty in the Ghanaian top flight this season after Accra Hearts of Oak sacked C.K Akunnor while Steven Abugri suffered the same fate at King Fasial.

Acheampong led the team to finish second in the league and to the final of the Ghana FA cup last season after taking over mid-way through the 2011-2012 season.

However, the Miners who lie sixth on the 2012-2013 league table have dropped vital points this season which obviously has irked the fans.

Former Ghana international, Kofi Amoako, has been asked to step in as an interim head coach.
