We rushed in appointing Seydou Zerbo – Kotoko’s Nana Yaw Amponsah


Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Nana Yaw Amponsah has admitted that the decision to appoint Seydou Zerbo as the club’s coach was rushed.

Zerbo had joined Kotoko following the unexpected departure of title-winning coach Prosper Narteh Ogum, which Amponsah attributed to a misunderstanding.

However, Zerbo failed to meet the high expectations set for him and was eventually let go in March, leaving the club in a struggle to retain their crown. Kotoko have been unable to recover from their disappointing spell under Zerbo, and will end the campaign trophyless.

“We rushed in appointing Seydou Zerbo. I followed him when he eliminated Ghana from the CHAN qualifiers,” Amponsah said on Wontumi Radio.

He also acknowledged that Zerbo had initially recognised the team’s shortcomings, but the results forced them to part ways. Additionally, Amponsah mentioned the personal tragedy Zerbo faced, stating, “We should not also forget that he lost his son at a point.”

Kotoko will play their final game this weekend, against Dreams FC in Kumasi, with the goal of finishing in the top four.
