Former Sewe Sports coach Rigo Gervais says he is ready to handle Ghanaian champions Asante Kotoko who are without a coach since asking Mas-Ud Dramani to proceed on leave three weeks ago.
The 45-year-old was sacked after the Ivorian side were eliminated from the CAF Champions League after losing 3-2 on aggregate to Guinean side AS Kaloum at the preliminary stage.
Gervais won two Ivorian league titles, two Super Cups, one national cup final, Champions League quarter-final berth and reached the final of the 2014 CAF Confederation Cup.
He told Techiman-based Gaskiya FM: “I decided to leave Sewe Sports to start a new challenge be it in Abidjan here or anywhere. I know more about Kotoko, they are a big club not only in Ghana but Africa.
“I watched them last season in Kumasi in a Champions league game where I came to monitor the two sides because my club was to meet the winner of that tie and I saw how big the club was. They have some great players.
“For me, I am ever ready to come to Ghana to coach Kotoko.”
