4 Possible Coaches That Could Replace Maxwell Konadu At Asante Kotoko

The Ghanaian Premier League is only a wave of games old but already three clubs have lost their jobs. Legon Cities’ Serbian trainer Goran Barjaktarevic was the first to be yanked followed by Hearts’ Edward Odoom.

Asante Kotoko’s Maxwell Konadu on Friday morning was relieved off his position as the manager of the club after a shock defeat to Accra Great Olympics the previous night. The club have since asked Johnson Smith to act on an interim basis.

Rumours are rife that the hierarchy of the club are already getting itching feet, with a managerial change supposedly imminent. Below we take a look at a handful of managers who could replace Maxwell Konadu as head of Kotoko’s technical team.

Kwesi Appiah

The former manager of the Black Stars is among those highly tipped to take over the vacant position at the club.

Having left the Black Stars after orchestrating a wonderful tenure at the helm, Appiah is enjoying a well-earned break, but the former national star is sure to relish a chance to show his managerial abilities, should the Kotoko job come up.

Proven at a top-class level, he’s also managed Ghana’s national U-23 team and Al Khartoum and would bring fresh ideas to the already diffident-looking Asante Kotoko side.

Ibrahim Tanko

The former Black Stars forward has been hotly linked with a move to the Porcupine Warriors on more than one occasion, and you can expect his name to once again be the frame should Kotoko decide to replace Maxwell Konadu.

Tanko has never hidden his desire to coach any of the country’s football behemoths, but whether he has the heart and stomach to contain the pressure that comes with the Kotoko job is open to debate.

Ibrahim Tanko will be a popular choice to fill the vacant position if fans’ forums are to be believed.

Annor Walker

Since taking over the Olympics job, Walker has gained a reputation as one of the best tactical brains in the division. He is the reason why Konadu and Barjaktarevic lost their jobs because his Great Olympics defeated Legon Cities and Asante Kotoko in stupendous fashion.

Walker, already an icon at Olympics, clearly loves life at Accra but you get the sense that in order to make the next step up in his managerial career, he needs a spell with one of the big boys in the league.

Kotoko, despite their current position, have oceans of potential and now bags of cash so they should do everything in power to lure Walker to the club.

The ever-positive Walker boasts strong man-management skills and a preference for an attacking approach, which could be music to the ears of toothless Kotoko’s struggling strike-force.

Ignatius Osei–Fosu

The 34-year-old manager would simply take a nanosecond to say ‘yes’ should he be offered the position of a manager of Asante Kotoko. Currently with Techiman XI Wonders, Osei-Fosu would relish the opportunity to manage one of the biggest clubs on the continent and fill the void left by Konadu.

“If you are a coach and you don’t dream big of coaching Asante Kotoko or Hearts of Oak, then you are going nowhere. “These are the biggest clubs in our country, and I am not ruling out coaching any of them in the near future.” He told Asempa FM in a recent interview.
