Medeama SC, the reigning champions of the Ghana Premier League, are making preparations for the upcoming season in which they will participate in the CAF Champions League. As part of their plans, they will hire a new coach as Evans Adotey assumes the role of Technical Director.
Taking over from Umar Rabi in March, Adotey guided the team to their first-ever Ghana Premier League title, surpassing the initial favorites Bechem United and Aduana Stars in the tournament.
Shortly after their triumph, club president Moses Armah ‘Parker’ hinted at the club’s intentions to bolster their chances of success in CAF interclub competitions, which have historically been challenging for Ghanaian clubs.
Armah emphasized that Adotey, with his wealth of knowledge, would transition into the position of Technical Director while still remaining with the club. The decision regarding the new head coach will be based on Adotey’s recommendation, ensuring a smooth transition and continuity within the club’s technical staff.
Armah stated, “Evans Adotey is our Technical Director and will continue in that role, but we will rely on his suggestions when making any decisions. CAF requires us to appoint a Licensed A coach, so if he advises us to bring in an expatriate coach, we will do so in order to acquire the quality needed to achieve our goals in Africa.” These remarks were made during an interview with Asempa FM.
Medeama’s last participation in CAF interclub competitions was in 2016 when they exited the group stage after finishing third.
