Thirteen weeks into the season, reality is beginning to hit some clubs and players of the Glo (Ghana) Premier League. Real Tamale United is finding that there are too few ‘winnable’ games to overcome the threat of relegation. Asante Kotoko have still not found what hit them. Accra Hearts of Oak have had their ‘perpetual season favourite’ shine dimmed by emerging powerhouses of the Brong Ahafo – Berekum Chelsea, Berekum Arsenal and Aduana.
It was of little wonder that the month of November saw many clubs appointing new coaches. Kotoko’s Ebo Mends resigned to save his reputation from further damage and was replaced by Serbian Bogdan Korac, who has just not had his magic wand working. Cape Coast Dwarfs appointed Prof. Joseph Mintah. Orlando Wellington took over the Berekum Chelsea hot seat and has since turned the Berekum side into an undefeatable force, while Jonas Amissah was appointed head coach of struggling Mighty Jets. These changes notwithstanding, some players and coaches were outstanding.
As always, I made a compilation of players who impressed me most in the past month.
COACH – Johnson Smith (Berekum Arsenals)
For amassing 8 points and remaining unbeaten throughout the month of November, Johnson Smith of Berekum Arsenals deserves the coach of the month. Johnson Smith’s Arsenals are among the favourites to lift the title this season. National coach Herbert Addo also put up a good performance with his defensive tactics, amassing 7 point for the league leaders in November. New coach of Berekum Chelsea Orlando Wellington has also not lost a game since he took over the helm of affairs on November 1.
