REVEALED: Why Ashanti Gold mutually terminated coach John Christensen's contract

A grapevine source at the Ashanti Gold Sporting Club has disclosed what accounted for the termination of coach John Christensen's contract.
The Danish has mutually parted ways with the Obuasi-based club after just three months period.
According to the Chief Executive Officer of the 2014/15 Ghana premier league champions, Frederick Acheampong, the current football impasse contributed to the termination of their stint with Christensen.
He emphasized that it was very prudent to take such decision in order to cut down the club's expenditure.
The experience football administrator added that his outfit will not appoint a substantive coach until the football season begins in the country.
"The reason for terminating the John Christensen's contract was because football is on break for sometime now and we can't be paying the him for playing only friendly games," Frederick Acheampong revealed to Kumasi-based Ashh FM.
"We're not playing any competitive football in the country and we needed to cut down cost in the Club. So we thought it wise to terminate the contract of the Coach."
"Teams like Aduana Stars and others are no more camping but Ashgold is still camping because some of our players will be going for trials outside the country," he said.
"The contract was terminated mutually and we don't owe him anything. We'll not appoint a new gaffer for now until the league starts," he ended.
John Christensen was appointed as the technical director of Ashanti Gold in June and later became the stop-gap coach after C.K Akonnor was sacked.
