Ghana Premier League giant Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC are without a substantive head coach following the sacking of Seydou Zerbo on Monday.
With the head coach position vacant for now with the Porcupine Warriors in need of a new direction at the technical side, Sportsworldghana.com delves into the names popping up for the job and who is fits in perfectly at the moment.
Former Ghana star, now coach, Charles Kwablah Akonnor, who has been with the Porcupine Warriors in the past has had his name mentioned on various platforms for the vacant coaching role.
He’s the last coach to take Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC to the group stages of the CAF Confederation Cup competition with scintillating and eye-catching displays.
He later got the appointment as the head coach for the Black Stars team due to his exploits with the Porcupine Warriors but was later sacked by the Ghana Football Association for non performance.
He’s been out of job for a while now after leaving his post as the head coach for the senior national team before the African Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon.
Despite his vast experience in the local game, one man sportsworldghana.com believes is the right man to lead the Porcupine Warriors in this moment as no other person than club legend, Kwesi Appiah James.
WHY KWESI APPIAH IS GOOD FOR KOTOKO
Kwesi Appiah has had two stints with the Black Stars team as the head coach and was the first black man to take Ghana to the world cup when he was the head coach in 2014.
Appiah has seen at all at the highest level of coaching, taking Ghana to the World Cup and assisting during 2015 at the AFCON tournament when Ghana reached the final and only losing on penalties to Ivory Coast.
Appiah is vastly respected by the club, Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC hierarchy and its supporters alike which makes him standout among the names being considered for the coaching role.
He’s also a club legend with vast experience and knowledge of the modern game and commands respect from players not only on the domestic scene but across the world for his enormous understanding of the game.
He made a name for himself during his days in Sudan where he became fans favourite and has all the requirements needed to be the head coach for the Reds.
Being a club legend and an experienced gaffer, Appiah appears to be the right man for Kotoko if they want to rise to the top of Africa intercontinental club football once again.
