Meanwhile, Accra giants Hearts of Oak have also sacked their coach Frank Nuttall.
A statement said: ”Upon receiving allegations about certain underground dealings by Mr. Nuttall, the Board constituted a three-person committee to investigate the facts of the case and give the coach an opportunity to defend himself against said allegations.
”After a thorough review of the facts and hearing Nuttall’s defense, the committee was unanimous in its recommendation to the full Board that his contract be terminated.
“According to the committee’s report, Coach Nuttall admitted to his involvement in aiding and introducing players of the club to agents and vice versa without the knowledge of the management of the club.”
