Ralf Zumdick rules out Asante Kotoko job

Published on: 12 October 2016

Though I have fond memories of my time with Asante Kotoko, returning to the club is not an option now, according to Ralf Zumdick.

The German coach was in the hot seat of the club during the 2002 season and later took charge of the reins as the head coach of the Black Stars, after the team struggled to churn out good results he was axe and replaced with his fellow German, Burkhard Ziese.

Having managed Asante Kotoko before, Ralf Zumdick was quizzed by reporters whether he still has the desire to take over the reins of the club anytime soon, the former VFL Bochum coach blatantly said, “My time in Ghana was really exciting and a very important learning moment in my life.”

“It was my first time on the African continent so it was key, but what I can say is that I love Asante Kotoko and there is no doubt about that because I know and respect the traditions of the club.”

“At the moment returning to the club is not something I’m thinking about because I still have two years left on contract with my present team and I want to respect that.

The German manager who has had stints as assistant manager with a number of clubs including European giants Borussia Dortmund is currently scouting for talent in Ghana for his current club Ferencvarosi TC in Hungary.
