Ebusua Dwarfs attacker Bright Luqman has jumped to the rescue of his fired trainer
Joseph E. Sarpong after a dreadful start to the Ghanaian season.
The experience trainer for the Cape Coast based Premier League returnees was shown the exit with just over one third of the season played.
Coach Sarpong over saw a run of six defeats and just two wins in the opening 11 matches of the campaign.
Centre forward for the mysterious club Luqman, however shielded his departed trainer from the media backlash citing the sharp decline in fortunes of defending AshGold as enough reason to give Coach Sarpong the respect due him.
The bony forward, who registered 30 goals in the second tier league last season, however envisaged the departure of the under pressure coach long before he was fired.
“Coach Sarpong is as good as any coach on the local scene as at now. AshGold won the league under coach Bash and even beefed up the squad but look at their form now. This is football where everything is possible and we have to accept it like it is,” Luqman told Sportscrusader.com.
The skinny goal machine added, “I am not surprised by the sacking of the coach since the team is not pulling up to standards. We are however seriously preparing for our home game with Berekum Chelsea as a unit”.
Ebusua Dwarfs dropped further into the relegation battle with another 3-0 spanking away to Kumasi Asante Kotoko on Sunday and stay rooted at the bottom of the table with nine points from the 33 available.
Luqman himself had a slow start to the season but returned to score two in two for the mystery club in the Premier League earlier.
