Former Asante Kotoko goalkeeper, Anthony Osei Kwadwo Mensah has faith in the current coach Maxwell Konadu to succeed and chalk more glory with the reds.
Several concerns have been raised about the former Black Stars B gaffer regarding his potency to build a winning side after several struggles in the truncated 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking to Nhyira FM, Anthony Osei Kwadwo Mensah expressed confidence in the expertise of Maxwell Konadu to fully reach the potential of winning more trophies for Kotoko judging from his previous records.
“Maxwell Konadu is a good coach. He is a lucky star that shines and I can make reference to when he was a footballer. He coached Kotoko some years back (2012) and we have seen his works with the Black Stars B too. He has coaching experience as well as playing experience so I trust he can build a quality team,” he stated.
The trust in Coach Maxwell Konadu to succeed is high from Osei Kwadwo and he is optimistic that his former colleague can mastermind Kotoko in their rebuilding process under the new leadership of CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah.
“The supporters must be patient and give him some time to build the team and I implore the new CEO to also work closely with him to achieve success. This is the time I believe Asante Kotoko can rise again,” Osei Kwadwo said.
Maxwell Konadu returned to coach Kotoko in December, 2019 after failing to qualify the Black Stars B to the CHAN tournament. He won the 2012 Ghana Premier League with Asante Kotoko after he succeeded Bogdan Korak as head coach.
Asante Kotoko placed third on the Ghana Premier League behind Aduana Stars and Berekum Chelsea in the abandoned 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League under Coach Maxwell Konadu.
