The former Ghanaian international tendered in his resignation at the club’s Secretariat in Elmina on Monday morning, a day after the club’s 3-1 match week 5 loss to Eleven Wonders.

Lamptey becomes the fourth coach to leave his role since the start of the 2021-22 Ghana Premier League season at the end of last month.

Speaking to Angel TV in Accra, the former Eleven Wise assistant coach revealed that his decision to step aside was in the best interest of the club.

“The aim of taking over Sharks is to escape relegation. I wanted someone to takeover before the start of the season but due to some reasons I had to reverse that decision,” Lamptey said.

“I decided to continue but looking at how things are moving after five matches, i decided to step down,” he added.

Odartey Lamptey took over the club in the middle of last season following the departure of Yaw Acheampong.

The Glolamp Academy trainer managed to escape relegation with the club.

However, after five matches this season, the Fearsome Sharks have recorded three loses, a draw and just a win which happened against Bibiani Gold Stars in match-week 4.

Elmina Sharks will host Karela United in the next round of matches of the ongoing season.
