'Peeved' Michael Osei set to consider Kotoko future after being snubbed for coaching job

Published on: 10 January 2017

Michael Osei is considering his future at Kotoko with the appointment of Croatian trainer Zdravko Lugarusic deemed as subtle voted of no-confidence.

Osei, a former Kotoko star, has been in an interim role since the sacking of David Duncan last season.

The New Edubiase trainer was seeking to get the job on a permanent basis but new president Dr Kwame Kyei appears not to have enough confidence in his ability.

The club announced the appointment of Croatian Zdravko Lugarusic as the substantive coach to fuel reports about the long-term future of Osei.

Osei, 45, is reported to be peeved at the decision as its being interpreted as a massive vote of no confidence.

He feels particularly dumped after he turned down a mouth-watering offer to deputize for former Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah at Sudanese side Khartoum SC. understands he may not revert to his role as an assistant as it betrays his conscience as a coach who can hold his own.

    No cause to dispair! He should now take the opportunity and go for his intended trainers course in Germany! He set this aside to fight for the permenant bid . He should make good use of this chance and come back to move forwards if not with Kotoko, with some other club which would benefit more from his knowledge and ability. Who knows perhaps this is the best thing to have happened to him, he should put the past behind him and move on, he has more to give than he thinks!!!
