Kumasi Asante Kotoko have all but agreed a deal with Maxwell Konadu to be their next coach for the upcoming 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League Season.
Maxwell Konadu, who formerly coached the club to their 22nd league title in 2012 is no stranger to Kotoko, having featured for the club in his playing days.
The former assistant of Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah served as coach of the Black Stars B squad for 5 years, winning the WAFU tournament twice and losing a final on another occasion.
He started of his coaching career in Ghana with Wa All Stars, after obtaining his initial coaching badges in Germany somewhere in 2009.
He then joined Kumasi Asante Kotoko in 2011, leading them to the 2011/2012 league title. However, he resigned from his post at Kotoko to join Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah’s technical team as his assistant in the Ghana manager’s first stint as Black Stars coach.
He doubled up as the Black Stars B coach for some time before recusing his position as assistant coach
However, after failing to qualify Ghana for the CHAN tournament on three occasions, Konadu has moved in from that role and is set to take charge of one of the biggest coaching job in the country.
He replaces coach Kjetil Zachariassen, whose disappointing spell as Kotoko boss means the porcupine warriors will not be playing in any CAF club competition this term.
