Wellington should not return to Hearts of Oak - JE Sarpong

Goal Ghana
The Phobians coach has been enjoined to part ways with the club to improve his health

Veteran Ghanaian coach JE Sarpong says Hearts of Oak boss Henry Wellington should leave the club to save his life. 

Wellington has come under intense pressure following the Phobians’ current poor performance in the Ghana Premier League. 

Owing to ill-health, the Accra-born has been excused from coaching duties, consequently missing their last two league matches. 

“I will advise Wellington to use the excuse opportunity to quit as the coach of Hearts," Sarpong on GTV Sports +.

"I believe that can help him.

“We lost the late Offei Ansah through pressure and I advise Wellington to be careful.

“Since he has been given some time off, he should take advantage and resign."

After matchday nine, Hearts sit 11th on the league table, having won three games, drawn two and lost the other four.

Wellington was handed the job in February following the dismissal of Scottish coach Frank Nuttall ahead of the new season.
