Deputy Ghana coach Ibrahim Tanko has blasted the management of Kumasi Asante Kotoko for setting an ‘unrealistic target’ for their newly appointed head coach CK Akunnor.
He believes the club will be putting unnecessary pressure on the former Ashanti Gold SC coach and that will make his job difficult.
The CEO of the club George Amoako, after the appointment of CK as their head coach quickly told the media that CK has been tasked to win the CAF Champions League or CAF Confederation Cup.
“They shouldn’t put pressure on CK now. He just came and needs time. It’s obviously good that they have given him a 3-year mandate. If he wins the league in his first year, that should be a plus but that should not be the target,” Tanko told 442gh.com.
”I believe they should give him the chance to build a team. After his second year, if they venture into Africa, then that will be good,”
“But for now, I don’t think they should put unnecessary pressure on him. They should just allow him to build a team.
C.K Akunnor becomes the first coach of the club after 20 years to be given a 3-year mandate.
