Kumasi Asante Kotoko coach Kjetil Zachariassen has arrived in Ghana and he is set for crunch meeting with management on Monday.

The Norwegian trainer has been out of the country for the past week after his outfit left him out of the travelling party to Ghana following the Porcupines exit from the CAF Confederation Cup in the hands of San Pedro of Cote d'Ivoire.

Charles Kouadio who is the agent of Zachariassen made an astonishing revelation in an interview after the Kotoko's CAF interclub failure that his client is not returning to Ghana with the team due to security issues.

According to Kouadio, Executive Charmain of the club, Dr Kyei tasked him to inform his client that his safety cannot be guaranteed on their return home.

Speaking to Kumasi-based Oyeerepa FM, he said contrary to media reports that his client is missing is a figment of one's imagination.

"Management of Asante Kotoko asked me to tell the coach that they cannot guarantee his safety so he has left to his house in Abidjan.

It's not true he is missing but rather Dr Kyei and Nana Coker told me I should tell him they can't guarantee his safety looking at what has happened and what the supporters did."

Section of the Reds faithfuls are calling for the head of the coach as well some management members have asked the coach to resign, but Charles Kouadio insists his client has no intention of resigning from his post unless the Porcupines terminate his contract.

Charles Koudio noted that his client is bent on honouring his three-year mandate given in July this year.

"I repeat again Kjetil will not resign today or tomorrow. He has a three-year contract and will not resign unless Kotoko wants to sack him," he told Kumasi-based Fox FM.
