King Faisal Football Club have appointed former Black Satellites head coach, Jimmy Cobblah, as their new head coach for the 2022/2023 season.
Cobblah takes over from Serbian trainer, Branko Bozovic, who was fired on Monday after a run of poor results.
He will be assisted by ex-club Captain, Godwin Ablordey, who was previously team manager at Asante Kotoko.
In a club statement, King Faisal said it was optimistic that the two coaches would give the team a lift in terms of results.

The Kumasi-based club has endured a frustrating start to the Betpawa Premier League losing all three matches to Berekum Chelsea, Aduana Stars and Great Olympics.
Jimmy Cobblah returns to the Ghana Premier League for the first time since he left Inter Allies in 2016.
His first game with King Faisal will be a derby against Kumasi Asante Kotoko when the suspended league resumes.
