Former Ghana Black Stars coach Kwasi Appiah has backed the newly appointed Asante Kotoko coach, Dr Prosper Narteh Ogum to succeed at the club.
Narteh Ogum has been appointed as Mariano Barreto's replacement after just six months at the club.
The Portugese gaffer parted ways with the club last week after coming in midway last season on a year and a half deal.
However, Appiah, who is a former skipper for the Porcupine Warriors is of a strong conviction that the academician has a lot under his sleeve to make the club glow.
"He is very intelligent, humble, hardworking and competent on the job so I strongly believe he can help the club back to its glorious days," he told Cape Coast-based ATL FM.
"A lecturer who has practised what he teaches and believes in good football is all that Kotoko needed and I know he can make the club flourish.
"We need to give him enough time and exercise patience and he will deliver," he added.
Narteh Ogum, who was awarded a two-year deal started pre-season with the club on Monday as they gear up for the upcoming 2021/22 season.
