Alexander Ababio, the Chief Executive Officer of Bofoakwa Tano, has provided insights into the club’s promotion to Ghana’s top-flight league following a 16-year absence.
The promotion represents a significant milestone for Bofoakwa Tano, who suffered relegation in the 2006/2007 season.
The Sunyani-based club secured their place in the top flight with a hard-fought 7-6 penalty shootout victory over Eleven Wonders at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Now, with their qualification achieved, Bofoakwa Tano is shifting their focus to the upcoming 2023/24 league season. They have outlined plans to revamp the technical team and strengthen the squad to compete at the premier league level.
Ababio emphasized the need to reinforce the technical team by appointing a new coach. He revealed that the current coach, Fuseini Abubakari, lacks the necessary credentials to coach in the Ghana Premier League (GPL) due to holding a License B.
Speaking to Citi Sports, Ababio stated, “We have to strengthen the technical team. We need to bring in a new coach because our current coach holds a License B, which does not permit them to coach in the premier league.”
This commitment to upgrading the technical staff highlights Bofoakwa Tano’s determination to compete at the highest level and underscores their ambition to make a successful return to the GPL.
