First division side Real Mack FC on Wednesday announced the contract termination of their coach, John Junior Konneh and the rest of his technical team by mutual consent.
The decision for the parties to part company was agreed following the ongoing restructuring at the club.
The club’s Public Relations Officer, Kemoh Sesay, who confirmed Konneh and technical team’s dismissal, said the head coach of the reserve squad will take over the team as care-taker coach until a new coach is announced on Saturday February 13.
“It was a difficult decision for us as a club considering the time he had spent with us, but we have no option at present as the club is presently undergoing massive restructuring in all aspects. So we have to relieve him on mutual consent,” Sesay said.
During his four years stint with Real Mack, the former Old Edwardians tactician guided the club to the 2012 Central One Football Association (COFA) non-division league title, thanks to a 1-0 win over Planting Promise FC.
The club also reached the round of 16 in the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) FA Cup in 2013/14.
