Mariano Barreto Confirmed as new head coach of Asante Kotoko.


Asante Kotoko Sporting Club have officially announced the appointment of Portuguese trainer Mariano Barreto as their new manager.

Since the Porcupines relieved Maxwell Konadu few months ago of his managerial duties, new names as to who are in line to replace him were popping up every now and then.

Now, former Black Stars coach Barreto has been confirmed to take over the reign at the club after so many weeks of speculations.

The former Ghana coach is coming along with his own assistant coach who will also double as the video Analyst and a physical trainer.

Barreto has experience of managing an African nation before, having taken over as Ghana coach in 2003. But he quit in September 2004 after just nine months in charge, citing problems in communications with the country’s football association.

He went on to coach Portuguese side Maritimo and several other clubs in Europe including Russian sides Dynamo Moscow and Kuban Krasnodar.

He will take over from Coach Abdulai Gazali and Johnson Smith, who were in charge before his appointment.
