Coach Maxwell Konadu has called on Asante Kotoko to exercise patience as he takes charge of technical affairs for a second time.

The former Black Stars assistant coach took over the club on Monday after signing to a two-year renewable contract.

The 47-year-old has been handed a target of winning the Premier League in his first season and subsequently securing a Caf Champions League group stage berth among others.

Speaking to Kotoko Express App, Konadu said: “I am back and can say that I am very delighted with the development.”

“I thank the Management and the supporters for the confidence shown in me.

“I will do my best but will ask that the supporters exercise patience as I try to improve the team.”

Maxwell Konadu, the former Kotoko player’s popularity among the club’s fans played a huge role in his re-engagement by management who understands, had narrowed their coaching search to him and French trainer Didier Gomes Da Rosa.

He won the 2011/12 Ghana Premier League in his previous coaching stint but left for national team duties at the end of his maiden season. His second coming sees him replacing Norwegian Kjetil Zachariassen who was sacked in November for failing to achieve his targets.
