Former head coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Coach Bashir Hayford has revealed why there is a mad rush by coaches in the country for a stint with Ghana Premier League giant, Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

According to him, several coaches are prepared to take Kotoko’s offer despite the unfavourable financial conditions just to improve upon their Curriculum Vitae (CV).

Coach Hayford also described as very risky how Kotoko’s coaching job is, yet remains one of the most attractive.

Speaking on UK-based West FM, the revered coach also talked about the impatience of management and supporters of the club saying that accounted for the high turnover of coaches at the club.

“You have to manage yourself and do something to improve your CV. People accord you the needed respect and pat your shoulders when they realize you have coached Kotoko before because it isn’t a small club. Everyone wants to coach Kotoko. Coaches will still come chasing for the job even if the salary cap is pegged at GHc 200.00. You can ask ‘Coach Opeele’ how much he was receiving at Kotoko?” he quizzed.

The Porcupine Warriors have had a plethora of coaches both local and foreign in a matter of years including the late Emmanuel Akwasi Afranie, Abdul Razak, Didi Dramani, Hans Dieter Schmidt, Steve Polack, Zdravko Lugarusic, Kjetil Zachariassen, David Duncan, CK Akonnor just to mention a few.

Several of these coaches after their stints with Kotoko have gone ahead to coach some top international clubs with some also earning national team appointments.

Bashir Hayford guided Asante Kotoko to the 2007-08 league triumph and also took the team to the Confederation Cup the same year but was sacked after the glory in 2008.
