Second-choice goalkeeper of the Black stars of Ghana Sammy Adjei, has reportedly been let go by his Israeli employers, Moadan Sport Ashdod...
Sammy Adjel will apparently not be returning to Moadan Sport Ashdod when the African Nations Cup concludes in February, according to Ghanasoccernet.com.
The website revealed that the reason for the club offloading the 27-year old can not be unconnected with its faltering start to the new season.
The Ashdod side, which finished in the mid-table of the twelve team league last season, is presently languishing in 10th position, causing a situation that has led to the management's decision to effect some major changes to the team's workforce.
The club has duly announced the signing of Israeli-born goalkeeper Tom Almado to fill the vacuum that has been created by the exit of the Ghanaian shot stopper.
Ghanasoccernet hinted that the player's agent in Israel, Daniel Asiedu, who is said to be "well-connected" in Europe, should face little problem in securing another club side in the country.
It also suggested that the Ghanaian player could return back to his former Ghanaian club side, Accra Hearts of Oak, if he fails to get a club side overseas.
With this latest incident, the Black Stars of Ghana will be going into the African Cup of Nations with their two best goalkeepers out of their respective clubs, for first choice Richard Kingston was sent Parking from embattled English club side Birmingham after series of unsatisfactory performances by the Ghanaian.
This should present some headache for French coach Claude Leroy, as he aims to lead the Black stars to its record-equaling fifth African title. The tournament kicks off January 20th in Accra, with the Ghanaian's playing host to the Syli stars of Guinea.
