Kumasi Asante Kotoko have today, February 8, 2021 confirmed Coach Abdulai Gazale as the club’s head coach.
According to report, A letter has been sent to the Ghana Football Association for his confirmation following Johnson Smith’s lack of appropriate credentials which doesn’t correspond to his status as the head coach of any Premier League team.
Abdulai Gazale, who is a CAF License “A” holder will be assisted by Johnson Smith and Raphael Akakpo Patron.
The Reds arrived at this decision following the departure of former coach Maxwell Konadu who left the club on mutual basis.
John Smith has been leading the Porcupine Warriors on the interim leading them to some emphatic victories in the Ghana Premier league including victories in Dawu and Aiyinase.
This is the second time Coach Johnson Smith’s career has been hit with this.
He suffered the same fate in Karela where he was seen as head coach on the grounds but on paper, it was Coach Paha’s name which was used as a head coach.139
