Slovakian trainer, Goran Barjaktarevic has arrived in Ghana to take over Wa All-Stars in the upcoming Ghana Premier League,

John Paintsil who is a shareholder of the club was hoping to guide the club ahead of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season but the Ghana FA has denied him to lead the club after failing to acquire AF License A certificate.

He is expected to be in the dugout when Wa All Stars open their league campaign against Liberty Professionals at the Karl Reindorf Park on Saturday, December 28, 2019.
