Kotoko dismiss head coach Seydou Zerbo, open talks with Samuel Boadu 

Asante Kotoko have sacked head coach Seydou Zerbo following the club’s home loss to Medeama in the Ghana Premier League on Sunday, the club has announced.

The Porcupine Warriors suffered their first home defeat in the league this campaign after succumbing to a 2-0 scoreline to the Yellow and Mauves.

The Burkinabe trainer was appointed head coach of the current Ghana champions in August 2021 as a replacement for Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum, after winning the premiership last season.

The Ghanaian giants have parted ways with Zerbo for a poor run of results, which has seen the club sit in the 7th position on the league standings after 22 games.

The former Burkina Faso national team coach was in charge of the 23 games in all competitions this season, where he managed 10 wins, 6 draws, and 7 losses.

Assistant coach Abdul Gazale takes charge of the team on the interim until a substantive one is appointed in the coming days.

Meanwhile, Kotoko have opened talks with former Hearts of Oak trainer, Samuel Boadu, over a possible move to take over the club’s head coach role.

Boadu was relieved of his duties as head coach of Hearts in September last year after a tough start to the 2022-23 season, which had seen the Phobians eliminated from the CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round.

The 37-year-old spent over two years at Hearts after he took charge in March 2021 from Medeama.

Boadu won the Ghana Premier League title with the Phobians for the first time in ten years in the 2021-22 season. He also won the FA Cup the same season.

In the following season, Boadu missed out on defending the league title but was able to retain the FA Cup title.

Boadu is expected to take charge of the Porcupines at the beginning of next season if an agreement is reached between the two parties.
