David Duncan: I am still coach of Kotoko

The aggrieved coach who was asked to step-aside still believes he is the coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

Duncan took charge of the Porcupine Warriors on match day 13 of the 2014-15 Ghana Premier League season and amassed more points from that time until the end of the season than any other coach to help the outfit finish 2 on the league log.


However, David Duncan had a poor start to the 2015-16 league season, forcing Kotoko to be pushed to the bottom of the table and was asked to step-aside by the club after match day 6 for his assistant Michael Osei to takeover.

There have been several attempts to resolve the impasses between the former Hearts of Oak and AshGold coach and the management of Kotoko by the Manhyia Palace and the board was tasked to sort issues out with the trainer.

But understands that David Duncan rejected the compensation package proposed by the board.

And Duncan last week came out to lash out at the current management of the club that they are not up to the task to run a big club like Asante Kotoko.

David Duncan’s position at Kotoko is uncertain and most football faithful think he is an outgone coach of the 23 times champions of Ghana, but he has confidently stated that he is just on break like any other worker.

“I am still the coach of Kotoko unless you people know otherwise. I am on break, like any other worker goes on break,” he told Joy FM.
