Mr. George Amoako, the Chief Executive Officer of Kumasi Asante Kotoko has affirmed the interest of his management in local coaches.
In an interview with Atinka FM, Mr. Amoako disclosed that several foreign coaches applied for the coaching job before the appointment of C.K Akonnor.
“It’s never true I prefer foreign coaches. We had 17 foreign applicants for the vacant position but we went in for CK,” he said.
“When our coaching position became vacant, I instituted some committee and upon their recommendation, we agreed on him [C.K. Akunnor]” Mr. Amoako said.
“The target for C.K Akunnor is to win CAF Champions League or Confederation Cup in the shortest possible time” he concluded.
Akunnor is due to take charge of his new side on Sunday as they take on Liberty Professionals in Accra.
