Michael Osei reveals how he rejected an offer from Sudan and still got sacked at Kotoko

Former Kotoko Coach Michael Essien says he missed out offer from Sudan after opting to work with Kotoko.

Michael Osei was the assistant Coach at Kotoko helping them to the MTN FA Cup title.

The former footballer was expected to take up the role as head Coach of the side after the exit of David Duncan.

However a change in Management meant he could only keep his position as the deputy Coach after the Club hired Serbian trainer Zdravko Logarušić.

Subsequently, the former Liberty Professional Coach lost his position at Kotoko after claims that the new trainer (Zdravko Logarušić) could not work with him, a situation the former Ghana International raves about.

“The change in Management affected me a lot, I was very disappointed, I think it was a wrong decision they took,” Osei spoke to TV3.

“We are working as professionals and this is my mother Club and wanted to achieve something with the Club.

“Kwesi Appiah was coaching in Sudan and he even decided to take me to join him in Sudan but we both sat and discussed that I should stay at Kotoko because hopefully I could become the head Coach because I was doing great and that would help my CV.

“So I decided to stay at Kotoko and Kwesi Appiah went in for another person to assist him in Sudan.

“The problem started and the new management came and they brought a new Coach thus Coach Lugarosic from Serbia and they said I can assist him and I was okay, I didn’t say No.

“Later on the problem continued and they called me to tell me the Coach said he cannot work with me, so I was very disappointed.”

He currently serves as the assistant Coach for the Ghana U23 side and helped supervised the team together with head Coach Ibrahim Tanko at the 2019 Africa U20 Cup of Nations in Egypt, a competition Ghana failed to grab a ticket to the Olympics.
