Former Black Stars coach, James Kwasi Appiah, has agreed to work as the Technical Director of Asante Kotoko ahead of the 2021/22 season, according to Oyerepa FM.
The former Kotoko player had a meeting with the management of the club, in the presence of Chief Executive Officer, Nana Yaw Amponsah, where he decided to head the technical directorate.
