Kumasi Asante Kotoko have sacked David Duncan just six games into the Ghana Premier League season after defeat at Aduana Stars left them bottom of the league table.
The club’s management have asked Duncan to step aside with immediate effect with his assistant Michael Osei set to take over technical duties in the meantime but it is difficult to see a way back for the former Hearts of Oak and Great Olympics coach.
Communications Manager, Kwaku Ahenkorah, told the club’s official website that: “Management has asked Coach David Duncan to step aside until further notice and with immediate effect”.
“The decision has become necessary after the club’s abysmal performance in the ongoing Ghana Premier League where Kotoko lies an unprecedented last position” on the league table with five points.
“Assistant Coach Michael Osei takes over as head of the technical team in the interim. Management further apologises to the teeming fans of the club for the performance displayed so far” said Ahenkorah.
“We will endeavour to turn the tables and send the club where it duly belongs” he added.
Duncan took over from Didi Dramani who had won back to back league titles after a poor start to last season and guided them to second place before losing the MTN FA Cup final to Medeama.
He had always insisted the team will do much better especially after he had brought in players of his choice but instead hey have endured their worst start to a season in fifteen years. The Porcupine Warriors have won just once this season in six attempts, draws two and lost all their three away games.
