AshantiGold Chief Executive Officer Frederick Acheampong has warned Asante Kotoko to be mindful of their new trainer Kjetil Zachariassen.
The Norwegian tactician early this month left the Obuasi-based club to join the Porcupine Warriors on a three a 3-year-deal taking over the reins from C.K Akonnor.
According to Frederick Acheampong, Zachariassen who guided AshantiGold to triumph in the Normalisation Committee Special Competition Tier 2 is someone who is full of lies and witnessed it during his short encounter with him.
“If you listen to him he is one person who tells a lot of stories (lies) so Kotoko must be very careful with what he would tell them”, he told Asempa FM
“I didn’t know him, but before I came he had, had a series of meetings with Champion (Dr Kweku Frimpong) and claimed he had coached WAC of Cote d’Ivoire and other things."
“Fortunately I once had the opportunity of working for CAF and worked during one of WAC’s matches and after the game, the president of the club became my friend. So I called him to enquire about Zachariassen’s claim and he said he has never met him.”
“Initially he said was he was a scout who was here to scout for players to transfer abroad…. so I have had my doubt about him from day one,” the ended.
Zachariassen has been tasked to lead the Porcupine Warriors to the group stage of the 2019/20 Caf Champions League in the first season.
