Ex-Kotoko coach Telat Uzum arrived in Ghana on Thursday night for Sundayâ€™s big game involving his former club and rivals Hearts of Oak, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.
The Turkish trainer will watch Sundayâ€™s game at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi as well as yet to be determined Premier League game on the final day of the championship, Â Ghanaâ€™s leading football portal can reveal.
Itâ€™s however unclear who invited him to the country but GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal that heâ€™s in town to scout for players for some Turkish and European clubs.
The 51-year-old trainer has been inactive on the touchline since he left relegated Real Tamale United in 2010.
He coached Kotoko during the 2006-2007 season but left after just a season in charge of the Porcupine Warriors.
Kotoko will host their sworn rivals in Sundayâ€™s big game at the Baba Yara stadium with only the bragging rights at stake after they clinched their third successive title last Wednesday.
The record-holders will also be hoping to complete the double after beating Hearts 1-0 in the corresponding fixture in Accra last year.
Hearts have slim hope of qualifying to the CAF Champions League as they trail Heart of Lions by three points.
