With just seven days to the commencement of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League, the Northern-based giants have appointed Serbian tactician Goran Barjaktarevic as head coach.

The 50-year-old gaffer touched down at the Kotoko International Airport late Sunday, and held a brief meeting with hierarchy of the club at his hotel base.
