Head coach Maxwell Konadu returns to Asante Kotoko

​Ghana Premier League club Asante Kotoko have officially announced Maxwell Konadu as their new head coach ahead of the new season. 

The appointment comes as no surprise for the fans as he has been a longtime fan favourite - this will be his second stint with the club. 

Konadu replaces Norwegian coach Kjetil Zachariasssen who was shown the door in November after a series of dismal performances.

The 47-year-old was at the helm of the Porcupine Warriors during the 2011/12 season and led the side to secure the title before he left to take on the role of assistant coach with the Ghana national team. 

Konadu who has signed a two-year contract admitted that he is happy to be back at the club however he hopes that the fans will give him to rebuild the team back to where it was.

"I am back and can say that I am very delighted with the development. I thank the management and the supporters for the confidence shown in me," he said.

"I will do my best but will ask that the supporters exercise patience as I try to improve the team."

Former Karela United head coach will be part of Konadu's technical staff as an assistant coach.
