Dwarfs coach Sarpong not interested in awards

Ghana Premier League returnees Ebusua Dwarfs coach J.E Sarpong has insisted that he is not interested in several awards organised in the country at the end of every season for players and coaches.

The Division One League board announced nominees for the inaugural awards last week.

Conspicuously missing were nominees for coaches that excelled in the season under review. The 54-year-old, who guided the Cape Coast-based club back to the premiership, says he is not worried because he doesn’t fancy such awards.

“I don’t care about some categories of awards held in this country,” Sarpong told Empire Sports.

“This is because they lack a lot of things. I usually don’t pay attention to them but I rather focus on my work with the aim of telling the world who I am,” he added.

Dwarfs’ striker Bright Lukman was nominated as the best top scorer of the season alongside Ebenezer Agyapong and Isaac Amoah of Techiman City FC and Amidaus Professional respectively.

Dwarfs finished as winners of Zone Two with 70 points, eight points ahead of Elimina Sharks in the 2014-15 campaign.
