James Nicholas Francis has been named as caretaker coach by newly promoted Ghana Premier League side Accra Lions.
He takes over from German gaffer Rainer Kraft who has been dismissed by the club for poor output.
Francis, who is an English trained coach is expected to bring the club to winning ways as they seek to maintain their Ghana Premiers League status.
Accra Lions are 11th on the league log with seven points after six round of games having won two, drawn one and lost three.
They will travel to Ainyinase on Sunday to face Karela which will be the first test for James Francis.
