The ‘Phobians’ have lost back to back league games and in between these defeats was a dismissal of then-head coach Kim Grant. In his place, Edward Nii Odoom was promoted from the club’s junior ranks to act as head coach in a stop-gap capacity.

Reports has gathered indicate that the gaffer has been given an extended spell and also the backing of management to help steer the club back to glory days.

Speaking in a radio interview with Accra based Asempa FM, the club’s prime communicator, Opare Addo has confirmed such a development.

He said, “Coach Odoom is not new to the GPL or football in Ghana, so if you appoint him to be an assistant you need to give him time to get the job done”.

Opare Addo continued “We need not rush to appoint a new coach. We will give him (Odoom) all the support and if there’s any technical support we need to give him we shall do that”.
