Karela United FC have announced the appointment of Evans Augustine Adotey as the team’s new head coach. The club made the announcement on Monday via a statement after successful negotiations with Adotey.
Adotey comes into the job as the successor to Enos Adepa who parted ways with the club via mutual agreement in March.
Adotey comes into the club with experience from his working days with Medeama and the national female U-17 team, the Black Maidens.
He will be assisted by Malam Yahaya who is the former head coach of Nzema Kotoko and New Edubiase.
