Michael Osei: I have the backing of new management to continue

Asante Kotoko interim coach Michael Osei has stated that the new management has assured him of his job as coach of the club.

Many have stated that the new management led by Dr. Kwame Kyei will appoint a new coach for the upcoming season.

But Osei who was handed the job on interim basis when Coach David Duncan was asked to step aside last season says Dr Kyei has asked him to focus on his job.

''Dr. Kwame Kyei has told me to stay focused and ignore all rumours circulating that he is going for a foreign coach, because what foreign coaches can do, local ones can also do,'' Osei told Nhyira FM.

He led the club to fifth place at the end of the season.
