The Ladies Association of Arsenal Supporters Club of Ghana (ASCG) have urged managers of the English club to appoint a more credible manager to handle the London-based outfit.
The call followed a 3-0 hammering of the Gunners by Manchester City in the English Premier League (EPL) at the Emirates on Sunday – a defeat that left the club seven points off Top-4 position.
“We love Arsenal to a fault, but presently the club is giving us lots of heartbreak and the owners have to wake up now before it’s too late.”
These were the words of Gloria Arku, ASCG Ladies Representative, supported by Doris Kukua Saxon
ASCG Ladies Tema Representative.
“Truth is that we would love to have Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti, who is presently unattached,”they stressed.
Arsenal are considering a host of candidates, but are reportedly not keen on appointing Ancelotti, following his sacking at Napoli. Ancelotti’s imposing resume includes stints at Chelsea, AC Milan and Real Madrid.
“He is one of the top managers in the world, he’s available and he’s on the market,” added the PRO of Arsenal Ladies, Dorcas Yaa Mensah.
Arsenal last month sacked manager Unai Emery after a string of poor performances, naming ex-Arsenal footballer Freddie Ljungberg, as interim head coach of the struggling Gunners.
Meanwhile, Ms Mensah said the Arsenal Ladies were going to round up the year’s activities with a get-together at the Sakumono Beach on December 28, having embarked on a number of charitable events all year.
She commended a number of its executives for their commitment and hard work over the years since the establishment ASCG in 2008. Mention was made of Stella Opoku (Organiser/Accra Rep), Abigail Opoku (Financial Secretary) and Sarah Kodji (Secretary) for their sense of dedication.
Others mentioned for praise were Mavis Yorke (Western Region Rep), Berlinda Addison-Ansah (Central Region Rep) and Akua Brago Obour Asafo-Adjei (Advisor) among others.
Arsenal Ladies are a subset of the umbrella body – Arsenal Supporters Club of Ghana.
