Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Nana Yaw Amponsah has revealed that the club’s management was compelled to dismiss coach Seydou Zerbo due to fan pressure.

Zerbo was hired to replace the successful Dr Prosper Narteh Ogum, who led the team to their first league title in eight years but was sacked following a series of poor performances.

According to Amponsah, the club’s management was satisfied with Zerbo’s performance, but they were informed that fans were planning to attack him.

Amponsah told Oyerepa FM, “We as management wanted Seydou Zerbo to stay as the head coach of the club but we picked an intel that he will be attacked by the fans and we did not want that to happen because this has happened in the club before.

“When we engaged him, he also confirmed that the Burkina Faso Embassy here in Ghana have also informed him that this is the information they received.

“Even before we sacked him, we still had the chance to win the Premier League title and if you bring in a new coach, we were not sure if he would make that impact we want but we had no option but to sack him because, at a point, there is a fact that the CEO must be sacrificed or the coach,” he added.

Zerbo’s replacement Abdul Gazale hasn’t impressed either with the club struggling to make an impact. They are eight points behind league leaders Aduana Stars with four matches remaining.
