Former BA United CEO Roy Arthur has been appointed Sporting Director for Ashanti Gold.
The Ghana Premier League side appointed the experienced football administrator together with businessman Emmanuel Frimpong who will be serving as the Club’s CEO.
The appointments of the two follows the resignation of Fredrick Acheampong who relinquished his job as the Chief Executive Officer of the Club few days ago.
Arthur has a vast experience in football administration having worked and managed several players.
He was in contention for the Central Regional Football Association Chairman, a position he missed out.
Frimpong has also been in the football business for some time now and believed to be the son of Dr. Kwaku Frimpong, bankroller of the Club.
The two got their appointments on Thursday evening.
“Yes it is true, the appointment came on Thursday evening, we will meet the other management members and see the way forward,” Roy Arthur confirmed to Ghanasportsonline.com.
“I feel privileged to have this opportunity as the Sporting Director. I think its great, looking forward to this new giants challenge.
“I hope to help the team achieve more success in the future.”
Ashanti Gold already have an eye on this season’s Ghana Premier League.
