Medeama coach Bashir Hayford has no qualms heeding to the club’s directive to proceed on leave with immediate effect.
Hayford was ordered to proceed on indefinite leave on Tuesday following the club’s stuttering start on Premier League opening day where the lost at home to Wa All Stars.
A lot of meanings are being read into the club’s directive with many believing it is a ploy to oust the former national U-17 coach but he insists he has no problem with the development.
“I have been made aware of a letter by the team manager asking me to proceed on leave,” he told Accra-based Hot FM.
“I have no problems at all with that, my employer in his own wisdom wants me to go on leave so why should I should I defy the order?”
Hayford was apparently sacked after winning the 2007/2008 league title with giants Asante Kotoko however hinted at a possible legal battle after getting acquainted with the contents of the letter.
“I will however have to first take delivery of the letter and be abreast with its contents which will determine my next move.”
Assistant coach Abubakar Yusif will take temporal charge of the team for the weekend’s trip to Aduana Stars in Hayford’s absence.
