Confirmed: Fmr WAFA gaffer Prosper Narteh Ogum appointed new Asante Kotoko coach


Ghana Premier League giant Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC have officially confirmed the appointment of Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum as new head coach on a two-year deal from top-flight side West African Football Academy (WAFA) SC. 

The Red and Whites outfit decided on the West African Football Academy (WAFA) SC gaffer after Kwasi Appiah turned down their offer to be their new coach following his exploits in the 2020-21 campaign.

The Sports Psychologist , Educationist and Coach joins Kotoko on a 2-year deal from WAFA, having previously handled UCC Soccer Team, Elmina Sharks, Dwarfs and Karela Utd.

In the Ghana Premier League 2020-21 season, Ogum helped the Academy Boys to a second place in the league at the end of the season finishing just behind the two most glamorous clubs in Ghana, Accra Hearts of Oak SC, the league champions and his new employers, Asante Kotoko. 

Portuguese Trainer , Mariano Barreto was fired at the end of the season for poor performance and bad communication skills which led to the hiring of Ogum as the new coach. 

He will be the head coach for the Red and Whites outfit for two years and will lead the club when the Ghana Premier League starts next month ending.
