Ghana’s Kumasi Asante Kotoko have terminated the appointment of its coach, Zdravko Logarusic.
The decision, which followed calls from the fans of the club, was taken at an emergency management meeting in Kumasi Sunday, few hours after the club settled on a goalless draw with Ebusua Dwards on match day 11 of the ongoing Premiere League.
“Zdravko’s contract has been terminated. He has accepted the official notification given to him,” a statement issued by the Club’s management said.
Zdravko at the emergency management meeting, acknowledged the need for change in the technical direction of the club and therefore accepted Management’s decision to cut ties with him.
Meanwhile, Assistant Coach of the Club, Godwin Ablordey, has been tasked to take charge until a replacement for Logarusic is announced.
“Assistant coach, Godwin Ablordey will train with the team until further notice,” the statement said
The Croatian coach was engaged by Kotoko on January 10, 2017. He however started work on January 12.
He led the Porcupines in 11 league matches in which he won five, drew four and lost two. His tactics came under strong scrutiny and criticisms from fans – many of who questioned his 3-5-2 formation.
