The Mysterious Club’s new boss has enjoyed a productive spell in amateur football but remains determined to prove his worth in top-flight as he marks his debut
Ernest Thompson Quartey remains determined to prove himself as “a top-flight coach” following his appointment as new coach of Ghana Premier League side Ebusua Dwarfs.
The Cape Coast-based club saw their former boss Joseph Assibu Raymond tendering in his resignation letter after only four games into the season and they have tasked Quartey who is making his bow in the top-flight to change their fortunes.
“It is true I’m the new coach of Ebusua Dwarfs and I’m ready to prove a point in the top-flight,” Quartey told Otec FM.
“Although, I acquired my coaching license together with Kwasi Appiah and many others years ago, I’ve been working on the quite but people very close to me know I actually have what it takes to do the job.
“When you even ask about me from Elmina Sharks coaches [which includes Felix Aboagye and Yaw Acheampong], they will tell you the caliber of coach Dwarfs have signed to manage them.
“I think Ghanaians shouldn’t be surprised because are a lot of new and unsung coaches in this season’s league so it’s time for me to come into the limelight and help Dwarfs especially in this crying time. I live in Central region and knows whatever is going on in and around the club so as a Christian, I always pray for directions therefore I’m spiritually fortified for the challenge,” he added.
Quartey faces a daunting task on his debut as Dwarfs, who have lost four games on the bounce, travel to Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi to battle Asante Kotoko on matchday five on Sunday.
However, he can take solace from the fact that the game will be played behind closed doors as Kotoko begin to serve their punishment merited out to them by Ghana FA due to their supporters’ misbehaviour against Berekum Chelsea.
