THE management of Berekum Chelsea has appointed Orlando Wellington as the new head coach of the club.
Wellington, who takes over from Steve Pollack, recently led the national Under 20 team to qualify for next year’s African Championship.
Only last week, Wellington quit Kpando Heart of Lions in what was linked to disagreements over his national team job.
He will head a three-man technical team at Chelsea, which will also include former Hearts of Oak coach Yusif Abubakar, and Baba Alhassan.
Sources at Chelsea said they would give the coach the freedom to handle the Black Satellites alongside his club activities.
Chelsea did what management called a strategic recruitment this season and it appears the team is strengthened to prosecute the national league with confidence.
In Bismark Idan and Emmanuel Clottey, they possess two promising strikers who can create troubles for opponents.
Clottey was invited to the Black Stars recently and had his first cap when the national team drew goalless with Sudan in an African Nations Cup qualifier in Kumasi.
From all indications, the football season would see a better Berekum Chelsea.
Management hopes the team would place in the top four to underline the growth of the side.
