King Faisal vs Dreams FC Ghana Premier League
The club president shares his thoughts on their woeful showing in the topflight so far 

King Faisal president Alhaji Karim Grunsah believes coach Slavisa Bozicic should not be held responsible for the club's disappointing performance in the Ghana Premier League.

The Kumasi-based outfit are enduring a difficult time on their return to the topflight, having failed to win a single game in eight matches played so far.

The Serbian coach joined the club early in January.

“The CEO, team manager, myself are those that registered these players, not the head coach," Grunsah told media men after his side succumbed to a 4-3 home defeat to Great Olympics on Wednesday.

"He [coach] been able to polish the attackers we gave him and they are getting us goals.

“I believe in his three-back system which people do not agree to that. I’ve never gone to coaching course before. I can’t waste my money and bring in a bad coach.

"This is a coach that has coached up to the Uefa level and there’s no way I can blame him in the first place but myself.

“I urge the supporters to be patient and I promise to revive the team in our subsequent games.”

Faisal have lost five of their eight games played so far, drawing the other three matches.

On Thursday morning, the team posted a series of tweets seemingly in response to Grunsah's post-match comments, calling for no "knee-jerk" reactions.
