Coach of Ghanaian heavyweights Maxwell Konadu insists that he has no fear of being axed from his position at the club.
Konadu is the sixth coach to be appointed by the Porcupine Warriors in the last three years. His predecessors in that time period include Zdravko Logarušic, Steven Polack, Paa Kwesi Fabin, Charles Akonnor and Kjetil Zachariassen.
The coach told Ghana’s Daily Graphic that the high attrition rate at the club did not bother him much because “it comes with the job everywhere”.
He added, “I am not worried about anything. I am very relaxed when I’m working but I know I am sometimes a bit aggressive on the job. I thought about that before accepting the job.
“Let’s wait and see what will happen. Maybe when we start to do things differently, they will see and admire, or whatever happens; that one belongs to the future.”
Konadu admits that Kotoko fans have suffered for too long by watching the team fail to live up their own high standards, but he is happy to be in a position to try and turn around the fortunes of the Porcupine Warriors.
“We know the pain the fans have gone through and I was very delighted and humbled when I heard my name on their list all over the country, which was also part of the decision to join Kotoko again,” he explained.
“That is not to leave the current management out. They also played a role. Dr Kwame Kyei called me himself.
“Chiefs from Manhyia Palace played their role and last but not the least my allegiance to the club and former players of the club, some of whom spoke to me directly. I have to thank all of them,” he concluded.
