Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Kudjo Fianoo has confirmed receiving a letter from coach Bashir Hayford requesting for a three-month sabbatical leave.
According to Fianoo, he received the letter on Monday around 9 am but they are yet to grant him his request.
“Yes I received a letter from coach Bashiru Hayford around 9 am yesterday. The heading of the letter is asking to step aside. He is requesting for an accumulated leave he should have had but a decision is yet to be taken,” he told Kessben FM
“It’s true the management signed many of his documents but it’s in consultation with the board. In this situation, we have to consider who will be replacing him as a caretaker coach before we grant him the permission.
“His letter and my swearing-in as the GHALCA chairman has clashed so it is difficult but will meet the board when I return to Obuasi.”
Ashanti Gold are currently at the relegation zone with 12 points after 11 games.
