AWOL Medeama coach Tom Strand rules out Ghana return

Medeama SC Tom Strand, who has unceremoniously returned to his native Sweden, has ruled out taking an immediate coaching role in Ghana.

The Swede left a note in his South African hotel room and went AWOL after the Mauves's 3-1 CAF Confederation Cup first-leg reverse against Mamelodi Sundowns last week.

Medeama have declared the former Bechem United coach left without their knowledge and are likely to report the coach to FIFA for his conduct.

Local press reports have linked the 35-year-old with Ghana Premier League sides AshantiGold, Hearts of Oak and Inter Allies in the past but he has ruled out a return to the Ghana Premier League immediately.


"No I won't return because I have other focus I'm working on now so I don't think I would return," he told Accra-based Asempa FM.

Medeama will host Sundowns in the return leg of the Confederation Cup next week at the Essipong Stadium.

Technical Director Evans Adotey is expected to take charge of the Medeama squad for the clash.
