AshantiGold Chief Executive Officer, Kudjoe Fianoo, says he has been told by the board to stay on for an initial six months period as talks continue for a permanent deal.
Mr Fianoo publicly announced he was quiting after guiding the club to win their first league title in 19 years, but the experienced administrator said he had been persuaded to rescind his decision and continue with his work as Ashgold venture into Africa next year.
“I met the board a couple of days ago and they asked me to stay on for a minimum of six months to re-align the club now that we are going to Africa,” he told Joy Sports.
“It’s not a done deal yet, they are still tightening the screws to keep me for at least another season.”
“We are still talking but we haven’t reached any decision point yet.”
He added that, “There is a possibility [of staying beyond six months], but they have to come with a lot on the table not necessarily financially but I think a lot of energy has been taken away from me on this club business that’s why I need rest. They’ve asked me to stay for six months; we’ll see what happens after the six months,” Fianoo emphasised
AshantiGold will play in the 2016 CAF Champions League after winning the Ghana Premier Leagie.
The Soccer Miners also won the Otumfuo Cup and Top 4 trophies last season.
