Ghana Premier League giants Asante Kotoko have appointed C.K Akunnor as the club’s new Technical Director.

This comes following management’s decision to relieve the 44 year old manager of his first team duties on Wednesday.

A statement dated July 4, 2019 and signed by the CEO of Kotoko, Mr George Amoakoh, said, “I am pleased to inform you that management of the club has made you the Technical Director of the club which takes immediate effect”.

The new position, which comes with an enhanced remuneration of GH?8,500 will also see Akonnor enjoying all other benefits he received as a coach.

Per his new role, Coach Akonnor is expected to “oversee the technical direction of both the junior and senior teams, be an intermediary between the coach and the management team and provide advice or technical assistance for the coach”.

He is also to “represent the technical team at all management meetings, hold regular meetings with the other members of the technical team from time to time and use your technical expertise to help promote and market the club”, the statement said.
