Asante Kotoko CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah revealed why he sacked Maxwell Konadu as head coach of the club, insisting the former national trainer lacked direction.
Maxwell Konadu was sacked as head coach of Asante Kotoko in December 2020 after the club lost to Great Olympics in the Ghana Premier League.
The Porcupine Warriors had gone 4 games with only one win – a development the management were not comfortable with.
And according to Nana Yaw Amponsah, Maxwell Konadu failed to provide a solution to their club’s challenges in their bid to return to winning ways.
He, therefore, had no option than to sack Maxwell Konadu despite the two being good friends.
“Maxwell is my friend. He even went to the extent of lobbying for the Kotoko job for me on my blind side,” Nana Yaw revealed to Wontumi FM in an interview on Thursday.
“Maxwell was always talking about problems without solutions. Clearly, he did not know which direction to go. So we had no option than to sack him despite being my friend,” he added.
Maxwell Konadu was the first coaching casualty under the Nana Yaw Amponsah-led management.
