Most of us know, whenever a Ghanaian club appoints a technical director, the likelihood of a coach leaving is high as this is rear with Samuel Boadu because he has worked under a technical director before and he worked perfectly.
Can it be he is going to get a better offer else where as two of the biggest clubs in Ghana namely, Accra Hearts of Oak and Ashantigold SC are without a coach and they can give coach Samuel Boadu a better offer even though it’s not certain the club he will be joining?
