Ghana giants Kotoko have sacked Serbian coach Bogdan Korak after just nine months in charge of the Porcupine Warriors.
He was been promptly replaced by Maxwell Konadu, a former striker of the two-time African champions.
”Mr Mawell Konadu has been appointed as the senior team coach of the club and his deputy would be Yusif Abubakar,” an official statement from Kotoko read.
The 51-year-old Serbian was fired on Monday after months of speculation about his future.
He was given U$25,000 as compensation for his early dismissal as he had fifteen months remaining on his contract.
Korak, who took over from Ebo Mends last February, has been under intense pressure especially after their President’s and FA Cup defeats to Berekum Chelsea and Nania FC respectively.
He however supervised Kotoko’s training tour in his native Serbia but did not return with the team to Ghana where officials told the media the 51-year-old has been granted a 10-day leave.
An unnamed foreign coach is expected to take over the technical director of the Kumasi-based club while Konadu succeeds Korak as head coach.
Newly appointed Yusif Abubakar will take over the assistant role and is expected to start work on Monday.
