Asante Kotoko legend Samuel Opoku Nti has opined that foreign coaches have not been of help to Ghana football and wants indigenous coaches to be taken seriously. 

"This is my personal opinion, I don’t think white coaches have helped Ghana, whether Asante Kotoko or Ghana or any other club. At the end of the day, what happened?” Opoku Nti told Silver FM.

"Our terrain is not really suitable for the white coaches. So we the administrators need to seriously give this a thought. The kind of support we give these white coaches, our local coaches are deprived of such.

“But when things go south for the white coaches, we fail to condemn them equally as we do to our local coaches in the same or similar circumstances."

His claim is certain to divide opinions, with his beloved club currently being managed by Portuguese man Mariano Barreto who failed to win the league.

Barreto's side lost the league to Hearts of Oak, under the guidance of Ghanaian tactician Samuel Boadu.

Opoku Nti won the 1982 Africa Cup of Nations with Ghana and the 1983 Caf Champions League with Kotoko during his playing days.

He used to serve as Asante Kotoko chief executive.
