Medeama SC rejected my resignation letter three times - Tom Strand

Former Medeama SC manager Tom Marcus Strand has revealed his experience at the Tarkwa TNA Park. The Swede recounted the pendulum of his tenure which eventually ended at the law court.

The current Accra Great Olympics tactician chronicled instances that marred an otherwise symbiotic relationship with the Mauve and Yellows.

The expatriate trainer who was the coach of the 2015 MTN FA Cup winners cited the financial gains he brings to the club among other reasons to make his tenure a huge success. The emotionally charged trainer then revealed tendering in his resignation on several occasions only to be denied by the CEO of the club in Mr. James Esilfie.

In an educational piece posted on his official Facebook wall,Tom Strand explain his marriage with Medeama SC turned parasitic.

“How come Medeama want me to pay them 35 thousand Gh cedis. When I put all my effort and power to the club.

They even sell a lot of players after I left and got money. Now am sitting in Accra with out one cedi.

I turned in my resignation letter 3 times to James esilfie the CEO of the club.

They took my phone, passport, car, no pay in time, I pay my own working permit, when we play some of matches they don’t let me do my work so how come this should count for me to pay 35 thousand.

Justice will prevail

God knows”, Tom Strand explained.

The former Medeama SC coach is currently leading the managerial affairs after replacing Godwin Attram halfway into the season at Accra Great Olympics. The Ghana Football Association slapped a whopping GHC35, 000 fine on the Swede for his contractual dispute with the Mauve and Yellows.
