Don't compare Kjetil Zachariassen to CK Akunnor - Kotoko PRO pleads

Public Relations officer for Asante Kotoko,Kennedy Boakye Ansah has urged the media and the public to desist from comparing their current coach, Kjetil Zachariassen to their former coach CK Akunnor who took them to the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup Competition in the 2018/2019 season.

Kotoko suffered elimination from the CAF Champions League after a 3-0 defeat against Etoile du Sahel yesterday in Monastir. The Porcupine Warriors failed to capitalize on their 2-0 first leg victory at home, eventually bowing out 3-2 on aggregate to the Tunisians

Speaking to Ohene Bampoe-Brenya on Happy FM’s Anopa Bosuo Sports,the PRO of Kotoko pleaded for patience from the disappointed fans.

“CK Akunnor is not the head coach of Kotoko anymore. He is history so we should not start the CK argument now because it won’t wash. Let us accept the fact that Kjetil is the new coach . Both coaches have won games and lost games.”

“It was not a bad decision to appoint Kjetil Zachariassen to replace CK Akunnor. This is not time for us to crucify the coach or the players. CK was promoted to a new position and he refused to accept so he left. CK Akunnor wasn’t sack.”

“As a team, Kotoko lost yesterday so we shouldn’t start comparing CK and Kjetil Zachariassen because it will break the team up . Let’s leave both coaches to do their jobs.”

Management of Asante Kotoko ,appointed Kjetil Zachariassen as their substantive head coach to replace Coach Charles Kwablah Akonnor earlier this year.
