Former Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah confirms having talks with Kotoko over vacant coaching role

DEJECTED: Kwesi Appiah


Former Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has confirmed that he has held talks with Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC over the vacant coaching position.

The Porcupine Warriors are looking for a substantive head coach after sacking Burkina Faso gaffer Seydou Zerbo.

The Reds, who are the defensing champions of the Ghana Premier League have been without a manager since parting ways with Burkinabe tactician Seydou Zerbo in March

“Asante Kotoko has a CEO (Nana Yaw Amponsah) and I can’t go to Manhyia and demand that I should be named the new head coach without the knowledge of the CEO,” Appiah told Kumasi-based Pure FM, as quoted by Ghanaweb.

“I played Asante Kotoko for years and I have been in and out of the club. If there is any assistance I am willing to do that.

“For the past months, I have held talks with Kotoko but I told them to hold on because I received two offers but let us see what happens.”

Kotoko are currently being managed by Abdul Gazale, who was promoted to the role on an interim basis, but the club is still searching for a permanent replacement.
