Popular soothsayer Seer Gyan has predicted Kumasi-based heavyweights Asante Kotoko will finish in fifth position should the Porcupine Warriors appoint an expatriate coach.
The Porcupine Warriors, who have carved a niche for themselves for notoriously hiring and firing coaches at will, showed Maxwell Konadu the exit door following the club’s surprising defeat to Great Olympics – which was the first loss the club had suffered this season.
Konadu, who replaced Kjetil Zachariassen a few seasons ago, came under serious scrutiny following the uninspiring brand of football played by his side coupled with their inefficiency in front of goal which was capped by the defeat to Olympics and thus led to a loud cry from a section of the supporters to sack the former Black Stars assistant manager.
Names have popped up from left, right and center including expatriate coaches. However, Seer Gyan, who is eminent for his sports predictions, intimates the record holders of the Ghanaian top flight will end up in fifth position should a foreign coach replace Maxwell Konadu as the substantive manager.
“Kotoko will place fifth in the Ghana Premier League if they appoint a foreign coach,” he told Kumasi-based media outlet Ashh FM.
Seer Gyan predicted further doom for the club as he initmated the club will suffer more defeats against less fancied sides.
“Asante kotoko is going to struggle I foresee smaller teams beating Asante Kotoko 2 nil on answered.”
In the interim, coach Johnson Smith, formerly of Karela United will step in as the stop-gap gaffer of the Porcupine Warriors as they square off against Dreams FC at the Theater Of Dreams this weekend.
