Ghana Premier League side, Medeama Sporting Club, have appointed Yaw Preko as head coach of the club until the end of the season.
Former Elmina Sharks head coach, Yaw Acheampong, will assist the former Accra Great Olympics interim coach at the Tarkwa-based side.
The 46-year-old takes over from Samuel Boadu, who resigned from his position at the club and joined Hearts of Oak as head coach this week.
The Mauve and Yellow announced the appointment of the duo in a statement on their official website on Tuesday, March 3, 2021, adding that Boadu’s assistant, Hamza Obeng, will be his second assistant.
“Yaw Preko has been appointed as the new Medeama Head Coach until the end of the season,” the club said.
“He moves to Tarkwa following a short spell at fellow Ghana Premier League side Great Olympics.
“The former Ghana Under-20 coach will reunite with his close friend Yaw Acheampong as his assistant one with Hamza Obeng being named as assistant two.”
“It’s feels amazing to be here and I look forward to working with my colleagues and the team,” Preko told medeamasc.com
“I cannot wait to meet my new team and compete in the Ghana Premier League.
“There is huge expectation on this fantastic club and we hope to work day and night to succeed.
“I have a fantastic group of friends, including my buddy Yaw Acheampong—whom I will be working closely alongside young and dynamic Hamza Obeng.
Medeama Chief Executive James Essilfie added: “We are happy to have Yaw Preko and Yaw Acheampong with us. It’s not easy to get a new coach in the middle of the season, but we know and understand the circumstances.
“We have absolute confidence in the pair who will work closely with Hamza Obeng and the technical director.
“There is so much to play for and much to achieve this season and beyond. We welcome them to Tarkwa.”
Preko and his backroom staff will take his first training session on Thursday and will be in the dugout for Sunday’s Premier League game against Chelsea in Berekum.
