Premier League newboys Nsoatreman has in a tweet settled a debate on who qualified the team to the Premier League between head coach, Boniface Ayipa and technical director, Kobina Amissah.
The Nsuatre-based side defeated Tamale City 2-1 on Wednesday in the playoff at the Accra Sports Stadium to secure qualification to the topflight league for the first time in its history.
Following the qualification, there has been an ongoing debate on who masterminded the team’s qualification to the Premier League. Some have credited it to Boniface Ayipa who managed the team from the start of the season, while others have credited it to Kobina Amissah who arrived at Nsoatreman with five games to end the season and has a history of qualifying teams to the Premier League.
In a tweet, Nsoatreman ended the debate by hailing Boniface Ayipa for qualifying the team to the topflight with only a loss from 31 games.
“Meet our head coach Coach Boniface Ayipa, who qualified Nsoatreman fc to Ghana premier league this season, loosing only 1 game out of 31,” the tweet read.

Meanwhile, Boniface Ayipa will be unable to manage Nsoatreman in the Premier league due to the Premier League regulations that requires managers to hold a CAF License A certificate.
Boniface currently beholds a CAF License B certificate. However, he’s prepared to work under a CAF License A Coach at the club next season.
“I have no problem working under another Coach and even if I had a License A certificate and management wanted me to be the Assistant Coach, I would be happy with that,” Ayipa told Accra based Happy FM.
“I have had my License B since 2015 and couldn’t get the License A in 2016 because I needed to work with the License B for at least 2 years. I’m waiting for GFA to organise another License A course,” he added.
