Rev. Osei Kofi frowns on Fabin coaching Kotoko

Former Asante Kotoko ace Rev. Osei Kofi has expressed his surprise over the appointment of Samuel Paa Kwesi Fabin as Asante Kotoko coach ahead of the 2017/18 Ghana league season.

The 59-year-old trainer was handed a one-year contract by the management of Asante Kotoko on Monday following their sacking of English coach Steve Polack last Friday.

Several top names have expressed divergent opinions on the former Black Starlets coach's appointment, with some even predicting his doom at the helm of affairs in the coming campaign.

And Rev. Osei Kofi, who was a management member during Fabin's first stint with the club, has joined the naysayers in portending calamity for the burly coach due to his style of management.

"I don't see Paa Kwesi Fabin bringing anything new to Kotoko, he had been there before when I was a management member and what did he do? I’m surprised Kotoko appointed him again," Rev. Kofi stated on Oyerepa FM.

"He has always had issues with player selection especially allegations time without number with favouritism and money issues. I don't think he is the best for the job, there are a lot of question marks on him."

Fabin worked with the Porcupine Warriors between August 2009 and June 2012 before he was replaced by Maxwell Konadu.
