Former Gor Mahia head coach Frank Nuttall is said to be lobbying to take over as head coach of Ghanaian outfit Asante Kotoko after the position became vacant with the resignation of head coach Paa Kwesi Fabin.

Reports in Ghana say Nuttall as well as two other coaches have shown interest in taking over at the country’s most decorated club.


Kwesi Fabin stepped down from his role after a video of him negotiating to take up a role with a yet to be named South African club was released. He had been in charge at the club since February of this year.

Nuttall on the other hand has been inactive since being fired by Hearts of Oak in February as a result of conducting the club’s transfer business in secrecy which was in direct conflict with the interests of the club.

The Scotsman had also been rumoured to be on the verge of taking over at Aduana Stars who also parted ways with their Japanese head coach Kenichi Yatshuhashi earlier in the month.

Kotoko are the country’s most decorated club having won 23 league titles as well as two CAF Champions League titles. 

Samuel Kuffuor, Baba Rahman, John Mensah and Stephen Owusu of Nairobi Stima are some of the well known players to have played for the club.
