Asante Kotoko, the reigning champions of the Ghana Premier League (GPL), is in negotiations to hire former Burkina Faso manager Kamou Malo as their new head coach.
The 59-year-old is expected to succeed Prosper Nartey Ogum at Kotoko after leading Burkina to the semifinals of the recently concluded 2021 AFCON competition in Cameroon.
A Kumasi-based FM station said that the club’s management has begun negotiations with the seasoned manager.
The porcupine warriors are willing to pay the Burkinabe coach as much as $6,000 per month in wages.
Although there has been no formal declaration to that effect, there have been numerous media reports claiming that the former WAFA coach has resigned from his position.
According to reports, the coach verbally said that he will step down from his position as head coach.
After berating players on the league-winning team, the coach is not pleased with the club’s hiring.
Even if the Board rejected his resignation, there are clear problems that need to be fixed at the club since everything is not right.
Beginning with the 2021–2022 campaign, Prosper Nartey joined Kotoko, where he helped the team win its 25th Ghana Premier League championship.
The former police officer has coached USFA, AS Sonabel, and had two stints with RC Kadiogo, one of the top teams in Burkina Faso.
