Former Fulham and Black Stars defender John Paintsil has warned the technical team of Wa All Stars to advise themselves to amid stop supporting destructors after suffering a sack from training grounds.
John Paintsil completed a successful takeover of Wa based side Wa All Stars from the administration of former GFA boss AKwesi Nyantakyi in March 2019, and Paintsil has turned a coach for his new club.
He has thrown his intentions to make All Stars climb to a top level again into the air. But recent tension built between him and his technical team could hamper such ambitions. It is believed that few important figures inside All Stars still don’t appreciate Paintsil’s takeover, his coaching role and generally don’t support his decision to move the Wa based club to the capital.
Misunderstanding saw Paintsil sacked from All Stars training ground three days ago according to the former Fulham defender. Paintsil would want away from his managerial duties just few months after assuming the position, and has escalating expressed his worries and disappointment in the technical team he brought in to support him.
In an interview with Kumasi based Radio Station Fox FM, Paintsil took time to dig deep into his sacking from training grounds. The Wa All Stars coach explained he believes his technical team have taken side to support those planning to make his work at All Stars difficult, but feels he doesn’t want to do anything to affect All Stars’ development.
“I don’t want to do anything that will destroy what we are building, and what happened in training grounds that day I think affected all the players”, John Paintsil told FOX FM in an interview.
” I’m more than a coach there at Wa All Stars, so what belongs to you people don’t take it by violent means, I willingly left the pitch, but what makes me more disappointed is that my technical men I brought turned their back on me, then they are with them doing those things to me”, He added.
Paintsil disclosed somehow his regret over helping people in life, however, he threw certainty that he is going to remain All Stars coach. The Ghanaian trainer advises his technical team on whatever agenda they hold about him.
“For me I don’t know whether it is good to help people or rather better you don’t, so it will be advice to a lot of people because they should understand that I’m not just the coach”.
“Nobody is sacking me to take my job, I brought you (technical team) so they should advise themselves whatever they are doing”, he concluded.
Wa All Stars won the Ghana Premier title in 2016, and would hope to replicate that in the 2019-2020 season, but would have to climb a huge mountain especially now that they are battling with conflicts whiles other clubs are seriously preparing for the new season.
