Ghanaian Players Abroad

Asante Kotoko Communications Director Kennedy Boakye-Ansah has indicated that the club wanted an amicable settlement with Coach Kjetil Zachariassen before parting ways but the difficult nature of the latter triggered an immediate sack.

The Ghanaian giants parted ways with Coach Kjetil Zachariassen after a meeting at the club secretariat in Kumasi,the porcupine warriors made the announcement on their official twitter handle on Wednesday just days after the team’s elimination from the CAF Confederation Cup.

It was understood Asante Kotoko was willing pay Zacchariassen in advance as severance package to fulfill a contractual obligation but the Norwegian trainer demanded four months salary.

”Zack wanted up to $12k compensation but Kotoko was firm and proposed $5k”

”Zack said no and latter demanded $10k pay off”

”Kotoko were unwilling, so Zack & his agent left the meeting to be continued” the official mouthpiece of the club ,  Kotoko NEWS tweeted.

Speaking on SilverSports with King Eben, the Communications Director of Kotoko said;

''We desired for amicable approach in parting ways with Kjetil Zachariassen but the coach was proving stubborn so we had to evoke a clause in the performance contract with the trainer to arrive at this decision''

”So we have terminated his appointment….Whatever the case he is no more the coach of Asante Kotoko and he is only due for his October salary”

''We also did not have a lot of time at our disposal ahead of the new season so we had to seek legal advice on the matter and make an informed decision as soon as possible ''

The Norwegian trainer remained under major pressure after he failed to turn things around for Asante Kotoko- they threw away a 2-0 first-leg victory against Etoile Sportive du Sahel in the CAF Champions League as they suffered a 3-0 defeat in the second, before over the weekend they failed to hold on to a 1-0 win in the CAF Confederation Cup against San Pedro of Ivory Coast when they lost 2-0 in the reverse fixture.

The elimination San Pedro was the straw that has broken the camel’s back. It is too much for Asante Kotoko to take, having parted ways with CK Akonnor despite winning them the Normalisation Committee Tier 1 Cup and reaching the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Zachariassen was appointed in July this year and barely four months into the job he has been shown the exit out of the club.

This is the ninth coach to be sacked under the reign three-year tenure of Dr. Kwame Kyei.

Johnson Smith has been appointed as the stop-gap coach at Asante Kotoko following the sacking of Norwegian gaffer Kjetil Zachariassen, Kotoko PRO Kennedy Boakye-Ansah told SilverFM.
