Asante Kotoko end association with head coach Kjetil Zachariassen

​Ghana Premier League side Asante Kotoko have reportedly terminated the contract of head coach Kjetil Zachariassen, Ghanasoccernet revealed. 

Zachariassen has been at the centre of heated media reports in the past few days after he had reportedly gone missing after the San Pedro game in Abidjan. 

Asante Kotoko went on to reveal that there were some security concerns back in Kumasi and they had advised him to remain in Ivory Coast. 

The Norwegian tactician eventually returned to the club and was involved with the first team's training. 

The agreement to terminated the association was reportedly reached at an official meeting with the club on Tuesday, November 12, 2019, at the club’s secretariat in Kumasi.

“We met with Kotoko management today to discuss the way forward of my client Kjetil Zachariassen, I can tell you as at now Zachariassen is not continuing at Kotoko but nothing official,” his agent, Charles Kouadio confirms on Kumasi-based Boss FM.

"We are trying to agree on a package so Zachariassen will leave his post as Kotoko coach but is bit difficult agreeing on a fee, let me say Kotoko are way off the figure we are looking for”

“The meeting didn’t end so we are continuing tomorrow but again Zachariassen doesn’t want this to be dragged too far because its a family issue.”
