Manso leaves Asante Kotoko


Asante Kotoko have announced the exit of coach Frimpong Manso who only joined them a month ago.

He initially arrived as a technical advisor on April 11 but his role metamorphosed into that of a caretaker in less than a week. The managers of the club had sacked Zdravko Logarusic and were left with an inexperienced Godwin Ablordey on the technical bench.

“Coach Frimpong Manso has in the last four or so weeks assisted Kotoko greatly. Now that his assistance has come to an end, Management likes to thank him so much for his effort and the time he spent working with us in these trying times,” Head of Communications, Obed Acheampong told the club’s website on Thursday.

After playing an advisory role in the club’s matchday 12 trip to Wa All Stars, a game they lost 1-0, Manso took over as acting head coach and directed affairs from the bench in the FA Cup penalty shootout win over lower tier side Bekwai Youth Academy.

The ex-defender supervised the side in three league games. He failed to win a game, drawing twice against Aduana Stars and Tema Youth, while the team was thrashed 3-1 by arch-rivals Accra Hearts of Oak in a Ghana 60th Independence Anniversary match.
