He had resigned from his position as head coach of Arsenal last season after complaining to management that he was experiencing throat pains due to the constant shouting that came with his job.

He said Mr Sarfo subsequently reported to the hospital where he was treated and discharged.

Berekum Arsenal, currently in the Division One League and desperate for a return to the top flight, approached Mr Sarfo at the beginning of the 2016/2017 season to help them in that quest, explained Mr Kyere. But, according to him, the coach turned down the offer, explaining he had been given medical advice to stay away from coaching duties to prevent a flare up of the throat pain.

But, on Wednesday March 30 at about 7pm, the coach was rushed to the hospital after his condition deteriorated. He died two hours later. He left behind a wife and four children.
