According to GHANAsoccernet.com, Asante Kotoko SC has re-hired former coach Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum to manage the team for the forthcoming season.
According to Kumasi-based Opemsuo Radio, the appointment was announced last night by the Manhyia Palace.
Dr. Ogum left the team following the 2021-22 season, despite leading the club to its first Ghana Premier League title in eight years.
Seydou Zerbo, a Burkinabe trainer, was appointed as his replacement and took charge of the club in three important competitions, including the CAF Champions League and the MTN FA Cup.
Zerbo, on the other hand, was fired in the middle of last season after a loss to Medeama SC at Kumasi’s Baba Yara Stadium.
Abdul Gazale, an assistant coach, has been named as the team’s interim coach until the end of the season.
Gazale, who was also responsible for managing the youth side of the club, led the team to a fourth-place finish with 52 points from 34 matches.
Dr. Ogum is expected to lead the club’s recruitment and pre-season training towards the 2023-24 as they aim to reclaim the premiership title.
Meanwhile, a new executive board chairman is expected to be appointed by the Manhyia Palace in the coming days to begin other operations before the season commences in September, as announced by the Ghana Football Association.
