“Yes, the management have decided to terminate the appointment of coach Cooreman ahead of the new season.

“We have reviewed the past season, and it is obvious that the management needed to make some changes,” Ekoh stated.

The 73-year-old Belgian was disengaged along with Chief Coach of the side Ere Dokubo.

Both coaches guided the Promise Keepers to 14th place at the end of last season.
