Asante Kotoko coach Maxwell Konadu is under intense pressure following their latest defeat to second tier side Asokwa Deportivo.

The defending champions of the MTN FA Cup were booted out of the competition by a stubborn Asokwa Deportivo on Sunday.

The porcupine warriors lost 2-1 to the Division one league side at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.

The former Black Stars B gaffer has come under intense pressure after failing to progress to the round of 32 of the MTN FA Cup.

Worryingly for Maxwell, bookmakers has tipped him to become the next manager to be sacked if their fortunes are not reversed.

Kotoko have suffered back to back defeat to Aduana Stars and Asokwah Deportivo.

Meanwhile, supporters of the Kumasi Asante Kotoko could not hold back their disappointment as they resorted to blasting and hooting at players for losing to Asokwa Deportivo in the Round of 64 of the MTN FA Cup.
