Legon Cities sack head coach Goran Barjaktarevic after 17 games in charge


Legon Cities have terminated the contract of head coach Goran Barjaktarevic after 17 games in charge.

The Bosnian has been at the helm for 11 months after taking over from John Paintsil who failed to meet the league criteria of having a CAF License A certificate.

During Barjaktarevic’s era with the Royals, he won just three games, all of which came in the truncated season where his side finished 14th.

As a result, the board of Legon Cities invested heavily in players this transfer window signing 12 new players including former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan.

However, fortunes have still remained the same as the Royals are still winless after two games in the Ghana Premier League.

The humiliating defeat against Olympics last Friday perhaps was the final straw as management decided to terminate the contract of the 51-year-old less than 24 hours later.


It is unclear who will replace Barjaktarevic as head coach, meanwhile, Legon Cities continue preparations ahead of their matchday three home game against Medeama SC.
