The first Coaching casualty of the 2020-21 Ghana Premier League season has been recorded, reports reaching FMiG indicate.
Our checks corroborate initial local media reports that, Goran Barjaktarevic; the Legon Cities Head Coach has been axed from his role.
This follows his side’s faltering start to the campaign.
Despite heavy investment in the playing body including the high profile capture of iconic Ghanaian striker Asamoah Gyan, the club has failed to hit the ground running in their first two games of the campaign.
They needed a penalty goal to rescue a point at home against Berekum Chelsea in their opening game, and later suffered a mauling at the hands of Great Olympics during match week 2.
The Royals were given a harsh treatment as Olympics pummeled them 3-0.
The after effects of this heavy loss is the top brass of the club have lost patience with the Coach and have decided to press the trigger on his head although the news is yet to be made official.
FMiG’s sources also reveal the club is eyeing former Ghana striker Kim Grant to take over. He has been out of work since his dismissal from Hearts of Oak last season (also after two games).
Grant is credited with helping assembling a core of the current Hearts of Oak setup and did also work for Elmina Sharks in the past.
