Agent of Kotoko coach, Kjetil Zachariassen, Kouadio has stated that his agent cannot return to Kumasi.
Zachariassen, has been told via his agent that it would be best for him to recuse himself from his post as Kotoko coach and remain in his base at Abidjan.
According to his agent, the coach has been informed by Dr. Kwame Kyei, Board chairman of the club, to resign and not return to Kumasi for his safety could not be guaranteed.
Speaking to Oyerepa FM, the agent of Kotoko coach Kjetil Zachariassen said;
It’s not true he is missing but rather Dr Kyei and Nana Coker told me i should tell him they can’t guarantee his safety looking at what has happened and what the supporters did, he said.
This was in response to the rumor that the coach had gone missing after the disappointing defeat to San Pedro in Abidjan.
Some aggrieved Kotoko fans could not hide their displeasure after the loss to San Pedro and made their feelings known.
Zachariassen took over as head coach of Kotoko from CK Akunnor in June after guiding Ashgold to the Tier 2 of the normalisation committee special competition.
Upon his appointment, he was given a target of reaching the CAF Champions League group stages.
He failed to do that after losing to Etoile du Sahel 3-2 on aggregate after winning the first leg 2-0.
He then dropped to the CAF Confederations Cup where he has been eliminated by Ivorian side San Pedro in a result that has not been taken kindly by the Kotoko faithful.
