A review of Ghanaian players who had their managers sacked in the English Premier League.
A lot of people touted other managers to be given the boot early but someone must have seen that of the Dutch man coming.
Crystal Palace have Ghanaian left back Jeffery Schlupp in their setup. Frank De Boer also becomes part of a list of managers who have been sacked with Ghanaian players in recent times.
Here are Ghanaian players who saw their coaches sacked from post.
The Ghanaian left back transferred from Augsburg to Chelsea in the summer of 2015. The Blues were champions at the time with the outspoken and buoyant manager Jose Mourinho.
Rahman joined the London club in the season after he made an incredible debut in the 2015 CAF African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea. His incredible performance led Ghana getting to the final and the youngster who was 21 at the time went on show great outputs for Augsburg in the rest of the 2014/2015 season.
The 2015/2016 at Chelsea was quite appalling for the club and it did also take a toll on the performance of Baba Abdul Rahman. Jose Mourinho was fired after losing 9 out of 16 games. On the 17th December 2015, Jose Mourinho was fired after losing to Leicester City the previous day.
Rahman made 15 appearances for Chelsea and was shipped off to Schalke 04 on loan there next season.
There was indeed an influx of Ghanaian players in the 2015/2016 season of the English Premier League. Garry Monk was the manager who brought Andre Ayew into the setup. This manager mastermind positive results against the big sides which came by way of draw against Chelsea on opening day and a 2-1 victory over Manchester United.
Swansea went on to just win 3 out of 16 games in the Premier League and that equated to Monk’s dismissal from the South Welsh side. Ayew on the contrary had a good season at Swansea with 12 goals. This got him to land a £20 million pound deal to West Ham where he currently plays his football.
Ayew played one season with Aston Villa where he saw as many as three fired with his stint at the club. The player was joined a club managed by Tim Sherwood as boss. Sherwood was not able to sustain a performance for the club he did the previous season.
Remi Garde was not able to also hold the fort and also himself outside the exit door he held the ranks between November 2015 to March 2016. That was the story for Jordan till his Aston Villa went for relegation.
