Maxwell Konadu implores Kotoko supporters to exercise patience

Published on: 11 December 2019

Asante Kotoko head trainer, Maxwell Konadu has urged the fans of the club to exercise as he takes charge of technical affairs for a second time.

The former Wa All Stars and Black Stars assistant gaffer was named as the head coach of the Porcupine Warriors on a two-year deal.

The 47-year-old has been handed a target of winning the Premier League in his first season and subsequently securing a Caf Champions League group stage berth among others.

In his first interview with the Kotoko Express App, Konadu said: “I am back and can say that I am very delighted with the development.”

“I thank the Management and the supporters for the confidence shown in me.

“I will do my best but will ask that the supporters exercise patience as I try to improve the team.”

Maxwell Konadu, the former Kotoko player’s popularity among the club’s fans played a huge role in his re-engagement by management who understands, had narrowed their coaching search to him and French trainer Didier Gomes Da Rosa.

He won the 2011/12 Ghana Premier League in his previous coaching stint but left for national team duties at the end of his maiden season. His second coming sees him replacing Norwegian Kjetil Zachariassen who was sacked in November for failing to achieve his targets.
