Dossena, Pluijm linked with AshGold job

Reports are linking former Ghana coach Giuseppe Dossena and Berekum Chelsea technical director Hans van der Pluijm to the vacant AshGold coaching post.

The Miners have entered the market in search of a permanent trainer as Kofi Amoako is acting in a caretaker role after the sacking of Yaw Acheampong in December.

Dossena, who guided Ghana to success in African Youth Championship in 2009, is jobless after leaving Ethiopian side Saint George SA.

AshGold officials are convinced about the qualities of the 54-year-old who has handled Albania and also acted as assistant coach to Paraguay.

Dutch trainer van der Pluijm is not happy with his role at Chelsea as technical director and wants to get more involved in the game.

AshGold are hoping to lure the former Heart of Lions coach if their pursuit of Dossena falls through.
