Maxwell Konadu has been appointed the new head coach of Asante Kotoko.
The appointment was confirmed on Monday after Konadu and the team held talks over personal terms and the conditions of service.
Konadu replaces Kjeti Zachariassen in the Kotoko hot seat after he and the team parted company last month.
Konadu signed a two-year deal with the Porcupine Warriors and he has been given the responsibility of winning the upcoming Ghana Premier League season which will give Kotoko a place in next season’s CAF.
Maxwell Konadu coached the Porcupines in the 2011/12 season and led the side to the Premier League that year before resigning to take over the Assistant Coach post of the senior national team, the Black Stars.
Maxwell Konadu’s re-engagement comes as a delight to the supporters who have been clamouring for the former after the exit of the Norwegian trainer.
On his appointment, Konadu called for the support of the fans and stated his delight at coming back to a familiar environment.
“I am back and I 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 the supporters to exercise patience as we are trying to improve the team.”
Konadu returns to the club where he won the Ghana league in the 2011/ 2012 season before joining the Black Stars technical team set up.
He will be assisted by former Karela United manager Johnson Smith.
