The Mysterious Club's manager has taken a swipe at the supporters for questioning his tactics after their heavy defeat

Ebusua Dwarfs caretaker coach Bashir Hayford has lashed out at the club's supporters following their 4-0 defeat to Ghana Premier League's newly-promoted side Karela United FC in the Ghalca G8 pre-season tournament on Thursday.

The defeat means Dwarfs are out of the tournament with a game to spare since they lost 6-5 to Medeama SC in the opening game.

The supporters booed the players and new manager calling for his dismissal three weeks after coming on board.

''I'm not officially the head coach since I've not been unveiled. So if they are calling for my head after this defeat, then I will give them my whole body,'' said Hayford.

''I opted to come and observe the players, so if they want my head then they should come for my whole body. I understand that the first team players [from last season] are only three and the rest are here for trial.

''The team is rebuilding and I opted to come and observe those who weren’t regular last season. They are the ones playing now. I want to tell the supporters that my head is there for them. If they want the club to have a successful pre-season, they should give us enough time to prepare,'' he added.

Hayford guided Ashanti Gold to clinch the 2015 Ghana Premier League title and joined Dwarfs who were without a coach after their contract with Brazilian Ricardo da Rocha was terminated mutually in December.

Dwarfs will play Hearts of Oak in the last Group B game of the G8 tournament on Sunday.
