“Some section of the supporters – whom I support because Matic is not doing well, want him out,” Kobby Jones said, as quoted by Joy Sports.
“If the management will not prevent him from being on the touchline [on Sunday], we will resist him because we believe he will not help us. We will do that.”

The FA Cup holders replaced former coach Samuel Boadu with the Serbian trainer, but after a bright start to his career with the Ghanaian giants, Matic has been on a downward spiral since the resumption of the league after the World Cup.
