Kjetil Zachariassen is a criminal - Edmund Ackah fires back at Norwegian tactician

Published on: 24 March 2020

Former Asante Kotoko head coach Kjetil Zachariassen has been described as a criminal by an ex-management member of the club, Edmund Ackah.

This is in response to an earlier attack by the Norwegian tactician where he called on the top-hierarchy of the Kumasi-based club to sack all of its management members excluding George Amoako because they are greedy and do not know how to run a club.

In an interview with Oyerepa FM subsequently, Edmund Ackah who was with Kotoko during the time Kjetil Zachariassen was the head coach for the club has labeled the gaffer as a criminal.

He stressed, “Zachariassen is a criminal. This is somebody who was trying to bring in an U-17 goalkeeper from Cote d'Ivoire to Asante Kotoko when we had the likes of Felix Annan, Kwame Baah, Danlad and Muntari Tagoe which management opposed”.

The football administrator added, “Same management he's attacking today alerted him on his coaching Certificate that it was inappropriate which he didn't know.

"This same coach tried evading tax when he's paid and was paying school fees of some Journalists at Light FM to propagate his agenda.

"I can speak for myself and my brother Nana Kwame Dankwah, we are not working for Kotoko because of our belly, he should get that and ask the one who employed him if I and my brother are after Kotoko's money.

"If people are in Kotoko for their stomach, then he should look elsewhere because I and Nana Kwame Dankwah don't do that and was not there because of our stomach."
