The former Asante Kotoko attacker wants to creates his own football philosophy at third-tier side Nsawkawman FC where he was recently confirmed as head coach.
“I want to build an empire on my own whereby I will have a team with my philosophy. Whenever you see my player you will know that he is from the camp of Eric Bekoe. So, we are on course,” he stated in an interview with TV3 of Ghana.
Meanwhile Eric Bekoe – who scored 27 goals in all competitions in the 2007/08 season for the Porcupine Warriors – has credited Yusif Basigi, his coach at Sekondi Hasaacas and former Ghana Premier League referee Mercy Tagoe for inspiring him to take up coaching following his retirement as a professional footballer.
“The dream started at Sekondi Hasaacas through coach Basigi. He prompted me about my knowledge about coaching and tactical aspect of the game, how good i am and all that. So he was an inspiration to me,” he revealed.
“Then talk about Mercy Tagoe, my godmother who has always been there supporting me in terms of advise and all that. They all wished me well,” he added.
