Asante Kotoko have appointed former Black Starlets head coach, Paa Kwesi Fabin, to run the team ahead of the upcoming Ghana Premier League season.
The announcement was made on Sunday via Kotoko’s official Twitter handle two days after Steven Polack was fired by the team on returning from Congo Brazzaville, where they had lost 7-6 on penalties to CARA in the CAF Confederations Cup first round qualifiers.
Fabin is heading back to club management after his time with the national U-17 team. He guided the team to the final of the 2017 African U-17 Championships in Gabon, and also to the quarter finals of the U-17 World Cup in India.
He goes into his second stint with Kotoko following his 2009-2012 working period.
He has been tasked to “guide the Porcupines while managing talents at the club for overall success.”
One of the talents he will be working with is Ibrahim Danlad, who was the 2017 Black Starlets’ main goalkeeper.
Kotoko starts the new Ghana Premier League campaign with a match away to WAFA on the weekend of March 2-4.
