Medeama SC coach, Samuel Boadu has resigned.
The young trainer submitted his quit letter to club CEO James Essilfie after guiding the Mauve and Yellows to a 2-0 victory over Eleven Wonders in the Ghana Premier League on Wednesday.
Boadu has been in charge of the Tarkwa-based club since 2017 and decided to resign some six months into his recently extended contract of three years.
His exit comes as no surprise, having been rumoured to be on his way out during their early season struggles.
The 34-year-old was twice unlucky in his bid to win the Ghana Premier League title with Medeama. His side led the log at the halfway stage before the 2017/18 season got abrogated due to the Anas corrruption exposé that hit the country’s football.
Last year, Medeama were top of the 2019/20 GPL once more but COVID-19 set in almost midway and that campaign also got abandoned.
Boadu is leaving the two-time FA Cup winners after 16 matches in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League. They are in second position with 26 points.
New job already in place?
Medeama SC coach, Samuel Boadu is the latest to be linked to the vacant job at local giants Hearts of Oak, Footy-Ghana.com published Wednesday.
The Phobians have been on a hunt for a new trainer following the resignation of Serbian Kosta Papic last week.
Footy-Ghana.com sources indicate Hearts have had to move for Boadu after talks with initial target Yaw Acheampong hit a snag.
Acheampong, the Elmina Sharks coach, sources say rejected the club after he was informed he will be working with an expatriate Technical Director.
Now the attention of the 19-time Ghana Premier League winners has turned to Boadu who has been at Medeama over the past three years.
