Former Ghanaian international, Sam Johnson has given reasons why he will not manage a local club and says it is stressful and the players are not well taken care of by the clubs and supporters.
Explaining why he discontinued coaching after serving Hearts of Oak as an assistant manager, the former Fenerbache midfielder disclosed that managing a premier club drains the individual and issues of refereeing coupled with the footballers standard of living makes it worst.
“Coaching in Ghana is very stressful. The conditions are not favorable as well. Issues of officiating does not help matters and the clubs are unable to take good care of the players so they can give their best on the field of play”, he told Asempa FM.
“When footballers are not well taken care of, they do not give out their best and will not listen to any instructions given them and I cannot tolerate such a behavior so until Clubs learn to pay salaries on time to keep the players happy and ready to work, I will not venture into coaching in Ghana”.
The successful Ghanaian midfielder stated that it is late for him to go back into full time football coaching but will fancy a managerial role on a part time basis.
