Techiman City part ways with coach Abubakar

The Real Citizens have gone separate directions with their head coach, who went AWOL for four weeks

The Yussif Abubakar era at Techiman City has come to an abrupt end on Monday after the club parted ways mutually with the former Hearts of Oak coach after five months of partnership.

Abubakar joined Techiman before the start of the season, guiding them to ninth place in the Ghana Premier League by matchday 14 but disagreements with the club's supporters after their stalemate against Ashanti Gold led to the 49-year-old manager failing to administer his role, and leaving to join his family.

He missed matchday 15 and 16 home and away games against Asante Kotoko, as well as matchday 12 outstanding game against Medeama SC.

Abubakar was in the stands on Sunday, as his former side shared the spoils 1-1 with Kotoko.

"We've gone through all the processes with Yussif Abubakar and his counsel and we arrived at terminating the contract we had on mutual grounds," general manager Yaw Fosu told Goal.

"He has paid his dues during the time he spent with us but the club must move forward. We will do everything possible to achieve the set targets by end of the season in his absence and wish him very well too in his future endeavours," he added.

Nurudeen Ahmed (Aduana Stars), David Duncan (Kotoko), J.E Sarpong (Ebusua Dwarfs), Herbert Addo (Inter Allies) and Kenichi Yatsuhashi (Hearts of Oak), former teams in bracket, have all lost their job after four months into the start of the season and Abubakar has been added to the tall list.
