Head coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko Maxwell Konadu has reacted to the reports of the club’s search for a new sporting director.
After an administrative reshuffle, Asante Kotoko earlier this month announced the end of George Amoako’s tenure as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the club.
The Porcupine Warriors have since then begun the hunt for a new CEO with the aim of setting a proper team structure and steering the club back to glory, as tasked by Otumfour Osei Tutu II.
Reports swirling around is that head coach Maxwell Konadu and his two assistants, Johnson Smith and Abdullah Gazali have recommended a new sporting director to the club to beef up the technical team.
However, Maxwell Konadu in an interview with Kumasi FM has rubbished those claims.
“There’s no truth that I am recommending new Sporting Director. We are in an isolation, praying and planning to amidst the covid 19 pandemic so we haven’t decide any Sporting Director role to beef up my technical department”, he told Kumasi FM
“We have new board of directors, let allow them to take in charge and plans best for us in every department in the club. If the board need new director or players they will contact me but I haven’t received anything.
“We shouldn’t start anything that will yield misunderstanding between the playing board, technical team and management, but allow any department to be focus on the progression of the club. We are now putting best things in order – He concluded.”
According to reports, owner and President of Division One League club Phar Rangers FC, Nana Yaw Amponsah is expected to be announced as new sporting director for Kotoko in the coming days.
