I have no issues with King Faisal – Nurudeen Amadu

Former head coach of King Faisal, Nurudeen Amadu says he has no ill feelings towards the club following his decision to resign as the gaffer of the side midway through the season.

Amadu took the role as head coach of the team at the latter part of the 2020/21 season, helping them escape the drop at the end of the campaign.

Having started the current campaign on a good note in the first half of the Ghana Premier League season, a poor start to the second half of the season saw the former King Faisal player step down from his post.

The gaffer revealed he has no issues with the Kumasi-based club, and also had no problems with Alhaji Grunsah’s presence in the dugout during games.

“I think that I am a former player of King Faisal, a former coach, when things were very difficult last season, I came in to give a helping hand because the time that I came was not appropriate. They were at the bottom of the table so I took a risk and all things being equal, we were able to escape relegation,” he told JoySports.

“After that, I just decided to stay on to see how possible I could also ply my trade there. So it’s been good since I joined the club.”

Quizzed on a compensation package from the club following his resignation, the coach replied: ” Not necessarily, those things are not an issue to me for now because we were like a family. I had a contract with the club at the beginning of this season.

“It’s a young club and Alhaji is running the club per his might and his capability but I think that times have changed and we need to do things in a professional way and back away from the old ways that things are done. very few clubs are run professionally in this country.”

The Insha Allah lads currently occupy the 14th position with 30 points, just two points above the relegation zone with eight games still to go.
