Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko George Amoako has revealed that his outfit have received a total of twenty-seven applications for the vacant coaching job.
Former Bechem United trainer Vicenzo Alberto, Charles Akunnor, one- time Ghana Premier League champion Yusif Abubakar and Black Starlets coach Abdul Karim Zito are among the tall list who are reported to have put in their CVs for the coveted job.
The Fabulous lads job became vacant last week after Paa Kwesi Fabin resigned after only seven months in charge of the club, citing personal reasons for his departure.
“I have received 27 coaching CVs for the Kotoko coaching vacancy job,” he revealed speaking to Accra based Happy FM.
“By 1st October we will outdoor our new coach. 24 out of the 27 applications are foreigners.”
A section of the club’s fans are calling on management to be swift in naming a new trainer before their Golden Clash against regional rivals AshantiGold on Sunday, but Mr. Amoako urged them to keep calm as they are evaluating the applications.
“The supporters should know that they can’t appoint a coach for the team. I have a technical brains group who are in charge of appointing a new coach and trust them for the best.”
“The new management is working very hard to rebuild Kotoko because working for Kotoko is not easy,” he concluded.
