Ghanaian Powerhouse Asante Kotoko Facing Dramatic Crisis

Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko appears to have descended into a full-on crisis club following a dramatic downward spiral of the side’s performance in recent weeks.

Arguably the most iconic football club in Ghana, Kotoko have been on a steady decline after dropping to fourth on the Premier League table this season.

The season of the Kumasi-giants has taken a surprised downward spiral since their 1-0 defeat to rivals Hearts of Oak.

Kotoko have since failed to win against Inter Allies, Medeama, Ebusua Dwarfs, and Wa All Stars.

The club is without a substantive coach after Croat Zdravko Logarusic was sacked after the side’s barren home draw against Ebusua Dwarfs.

Executive chairman Dr Kwame Kyei is beginning to feel the heat after expressing his disgust at the player’s failure to step up to the plate.

The Porcupine Warriors appears to be in a quagmire after the club sacked team manager Shilla Alhassan after just five months.

Assistant coach Godwin Ablordey has been reassigned to his former role as team manager with no clear in sight on the technical direction of the club, understands.

Multiple media reports are claiming the club has has held secret talks with former Aduana Stars trainer Cioaba Aristica over the vacant coaching job.

Even though top officials have remained tight-lipped on the raging claims, the Azam FC coach is hugely tipped to replace the Croat.

The incoming coach will have a tough task on his hands, having to revive a club that has not won the league in the last three years.

While boasting some of the biggest names in the Ghanaian top-flight, the footballing structure at the Kumasi-based team – or the lack thereof – has to be highlighted as one of the glaring reasons for their seeming decline.
