Revealed: Why ex-Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has distanced himself from Asante Kotoko vacant coaching job
Former Ghana head coach, Kwesi Appiah has distanced himself from the Asante Kotoko vacant coaching job saying ‘he is not ready’.
The Ghana Premier League giants are in search of a new head trainer following the sacking of Maxwell Konadu.
Kotoko and Konadu parted ways following their 1-0 defeat to Accra Great Olympics at the Accra Sports Stadium.
However, Kwesi Appiah, who is a legend of the club has been linked to the vacant job but a close source speaking to AshesGyamera.com has revealed the former Al Khartoum boss is not interested in taking up the coaching job at the club.
“There is no way Kwesi Appiah will become the next coach of Asante Kotoko because he is actually not interested at the moment,” a source close said.
“After his contract with Ghana expired, he decided to take time off football and leave the scene for a while because he has been through a lot. Currently, he is doing other businesses which are showing promises and it will be premature to halt all the plans and projections made to become the successor of Maxwell Konadu.
“Everything in this world is possible but this comeback is highly impossible. I believe Kotoko will look elsewhere,” the source added.
Johnson Smith, who was an assistant to Maxwell Konadu has taken up the job on an interim basis and has won one and drawn one in the last two matches played.
Smith will also lead the club to Sudan in their Caf Champions League second leg game against Al Hilal in Omdurman.
Aside Appiah, former Ghana assistant coach Ibrahim Tanko and a host of other foreign coaches have been likened to the club.
