Kwesi Appiah, a former coach of the Black Stars, has stated that he is in discussions with Asante Kotoko about becoming the club’s next coach. These discussions come after the club fired Burkinabe Seydou Zerbo due to the team’s poor performance.
Appiah, who managed Ghana at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, has stated that conversations have taken place between Kotoko and a potential new manager. Kotoko are searching for an experienced hand to turn their season around.
However, he has requested that the club refrain from making any decision at this time because he is now evaluating several other offers that are on the table.
In a recent interview with Pure FM, he stated, “Over the past few months, I have held discussions with Kotoko but I told them to hold on because I received two offers but let us see what happens.”
“I spent years playing for Asante Kotoko, and throughout that time I was both a member and a non-member of the club. He continued by saying, “If there is any assistance that is needed, I am willing to do that.”
Appiah, who submitted a job application to manage the Black Stars earlier this year, has also been mentioned in connection with Tanzanian club Simba SC.
During his playing career, Appiah won seven league titles, as well as the African Champions League in 1982. He also served as captain of Kotoko at one point.
