Former assistant coach of Cameroon, Ibrahim Tanko has denied reports linking him to the vacant head coach position at Kotoko.

The coach is currently unattached after leaving his post as assistant to Volker Finke at Cameroon in 2015. Earlier reports in the media suggested that he was close to joining the Porcupine warriors as a coach or technical director.

Kotoko has been without a coach since parting ways with David Duncan early last season. Consequently, Michael Osei has been acting as stop-gap coach for the Kumasi-based club. Certain quarters of the club’s hierarchy are reported to be unconvinced with Osei's performance, and are on the search for a new head coach.

Tanko, who has been touted as a replacement for the outgone Duncan, says he is yet to be contacted by anybody from the camp of the Porcupine Warriors.

"I also saw it in the media but I have not discussed anything with anyone. No one has called me to take the role of Sporting Director at Kotoko," Tanko is quoted as saying by Ghanasoccernet.com.

He adds that: "Maybe someone saw me watching a Kotoko game at the Baba Yara recently and thinks I am in for the job. But in all honesty, I have not spoken to anyone.”

Kotoko are yet to confirm Osei as permanent coach and that has cast doubts on the club legend’s long term future.
