Management of Asante Kotoko contacted Great Olympics coach Annor Walker as replacement for the departed Maxwell Konadu, according to the latest intelligence gathered by Kumasi-based media outlet Oyerepa FM.
Since showing erstwhile Black Stars B head coach Maxwell Konadu after suffering an unexpected slim loss to coach Annor Walker and Great Olympics, the Porcupine Warriors have been without a substantive manager with Johnson Smith acting in his stead since the exit of Konadu.
As each game day passes on, supporters of the club are growing frustrated over the club’s reluctance in appointing a substantive coach to direct the technical affairs of the club.
Some section of the supporters have argued Johnson Smith’s performance as interim coach should be enough to land him the hot seat, however the former Karela United gaffer is not a holder of CAF License A certificate – which is a requirement to coach a Premier League side.
Out of the five games played in January, Coach Johnson Smith’s side guided his side to two wins and 2 draws in January.
The Club secured a win at home and one away in the month. They however suffered a defeat to Great Olympics at the Accra Sports Stadium.
His dicey situation has left the rank and file of the club in a conundrum. But per intelligence gathered by Oyerepa FM, the management of Asante Kotoko made contact with former player and gaffer of Olympics Annor Walker before he went on sick leave.
The sources suggest that had it not been for the health status of Annor Walker, he could have been in the dugout for the most glamorous outfit in the Ghana Premier League.
Further snippets of information suggest there has been a contact recently made by Asante Kotoko after the Coach’s health got better but the Porcupine Warriors seem to be looking elsewhere for now.
