Karim Zito questions Asante Kotoko bosses decision to part ways with Prosper Narteh Ogum

Published on: 19 May 2023

Veteran Ghanaian coach, Karim Zito beleives Asante Kotoko should have stuck with Prosper Narteh Ogum as the head coach of the club.

Prior to the start of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League, Narteh Ogum following his exploits at WAFA was named as the head coach of the Porcupine Warriors on a two-year deal.

The University of Cape Coast lecturer led the Reds to Premier League glory in his first season at the club.

However, the club parted ways with the club ahead of the ongoing 2022/23 season.

Burkinabe trainer, Seydou Zerbo was named as the new manager but has been sacked after a poor start.

Abdul Gazale, academy coach has been named as the interim coach until the end of the season.

And according to Zito, Kotoko management should have stuck with Narteh Ogum instead of appointing Zerbo as his successor.

"All these problems were the resultant effect of the new coach who took over. It wasn't going to be easy to perform with a team he (Seydou Zerbo) didn't build; it only takes experienced coaches to navigate this difficult hurdle," he told Kumasi-based Akoma FM.

Kotoko after 30 games played sit 6th on the pile with 44 points and will be hosted by relegated Kotoku Royals in the matchday 31 games at the Theatre of Dreams at Dawu on Monday.
