Ex-Kotoko management member Edmund Ackah has launched a scathing attack on their former coach Kjetil Zachariassen.

The Norwegian trainer’s tenure in charge of the Porcupine Warriors was marred by controversies and was eventually sacked four months after his appointment.

The 50 year old was accused of holding a fake certificate leading to fans outrage at the club.

Zacharissen had a contract with the club till 2022 before the termination.

“Zachariassen is a criminal. This is somebody who was trying to bring in a U-17 goalkeeper from Cote d’Ivoire to Asante Kotoko when we had the likes of Felix Annan, Kwame Baah, Danlad and Muntari Tagoe which management opposed,” Ackah said.

“Same management he’s attacking today alerted him on his coaching Certificate that it was inappropriate which he didn’t know.

“This same coach tried evading tax when he’s paid and was paying school fees of some Journalists at Light FM to propagate his agenda.

“I can speak for myself and my brother Nana Kwame Dankwah, we are not working for Kotoko because of our belly, he should get that and ask the one who employed him if I and my brother are after Kotoko’s money.

“If people are in Kotoko for their stomach, then he should look elsewhere because I and Nana Kwame Dankwah don’t do that and was not there because of our stomach.”
