Abdul Razak says Kotoko's owner wants him to coach the club.

Abdul Razak Claims He Is Wanted For Kotoko Coaching Job       

Ghana legend Abdul Razak claims he is wanted by Asante Kotoko as their new head coach with Mas-Ud Dramani set to be dismissed.

The 1978 African Footballer of the Year has told the Graphic Sports the club?s owner Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu will love to have him back as head of the technical team.

But the 61-year-old, who hold a FIFA License ?B? coach coaching certificate is not qualified for the job unless he picks up the License ?A? badge ? the requirement for coaches in the Ghana top-flight.

?Yes, His Majesty had expressed his desire to see me back to the club,? Razak is quoted by the state-owned newspaper.

?I went with the team and in the course of the introduction, the then Executive Chairman, Dr Kofi Kodua Sarpong, mentioned my name and told the Asantehene that but for the fact that I did not have a FIFA License ?A? coaching certificate, he would have loved to see me as the coach of the club.

?At the meeting, Otumfuo invited me to his seat where he told me he would want me to return to coach Kotoko.?

Razak guided Malian giants Stade Malien to three league titles, FA Cup and Super Cup during two spells in 2001-2002 and 2005 and 2006.

He led Asante Kotoko to win their first Ghana Premier League title in ten years in 2003 before moving over to Real Tamale United.
