Ricardo Da Rocha will leave Ashantigold this week, after his contract has been terminated by mutual consent, with new coach set to step in imminently.
Affairstv. Com understand that the Brazilian will lose his job as a result of failure to meet the new coaching requirement.
Da rocha was not named in the approved list of coaches announced by the Ghana Football Association on Tuesday December 24 ahead of the new season.
Our reports further reveal that the Obuasi base team will appoint an expatriate/foreign coach to lead the team for the rest of the Season.
This could mean that the former Ebusua Dwarfs coach does not have a CAF License certificate as demanded by the football Association to lead the ‘Aboakese’ lads.
Assistant coach Yakubu Mambo Sharriff and fitness trainer James Commey Bortsie were both approved and eligible to perform their respective roles.
The 56-year-old gaffer replaced Kzetil Zachariassen as the head coach in July this year.
After his appointment, the Brazilian led the Miners to a famous 4-1 on aggregate victory over Equitorial Guinea side Akonangui FC in the CAF 2019/2020 Confederations Cup competition but failed to make to the group stages.
The former Ebusua Dwarfs coach also led the miners to a regional-derby victory over Asante Kotoko for the maiden BK Edusei Cup triumph.
Ashantigold begin their 2019/2020 campaign when they welcome Great Olympics at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium this weekend.
