Former head coach of the Black Stars, Charles Kwabla Akonnor has revealed why he switched to love Kumasi Asante Kotoko despite being Hearts of Oak fan.
According to the Ghanaian tactician, he became to love Kotoko because of what he experienced during his time as their gaffer.
CK Akonnor managed Kumasi Asante Kotoko from 2018 to 2019. He helped the Porcupines to win the 2019 GFA Normalization Committee Special Competition and reach the money zone of the 2019/20 CAF Champions League.
Speaking in an interview with Paul Adom Otchere on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana he disclosed why he switched his love for Kotoko despite being Hearts of Oak.
“To be honest with you I was Hearts of Oak supporter but I became to love Kotoko because of what I experienced when I went there. My house, my family were all Hearts supporters. My father is Hearts of Oak man.
“I was seen in more professional way. If am with Kotoko I want to beat Hearts and if am with Hearts I want to beat Kotoko. No doubt about it.
So when you went to Hearts of Oak did you feel like you have come home? “I felt like I was working and I had to be professional, give all my best for the team. I don’t look at it on that fan perspective but as a job that has been given they pay me so I have to give my best to the club,” he revealed.
The 48-year-old is one of few coaches who have managed the national team, as well as the two biggest clubs in the country.
He was in charge of Hearts of Oak for a year before he managed their rivals Asante Kotoko from 2018 to 2019.
