Nigeria club side, Kwara United's Chief Coach, Philip Boama, may be on his way back to Ghana, as he is considering the possibility of dumping his present club because of unpaid four months salaries. Boama, who has had the opportunity of tinkering some top clubs in the country, says he is returning home to seek for Black Stars’ coaching job. The Ghanaian-born football tactician says he is through with the Nigerian club side, whose supporters are threatening his life for asking for his four months salary arrears. "I cannot continue to work here where my life is not safe any more. It is sad because my demand is legitimate. I have not gone out of my ways to ask for something not legitimate. So, why are people threatening my life?" he queried. The former Julius Berger FC of Lagos revealed that he had opened a discussion with the Ghana Football Association, assuring that the result would be positive.

"I have come of age in this coaching business. I have what it takes to coach the Black Stars. I am confident that I will get the job," he assured.
