Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Isaac Amoako fears the exit of coach Maxwell Konadu will crush his â€˜projectâ€™ at the club next season.
The future of the former All Stars boss has been hugely speculated after he was strongly linked with the Black Stars job
Itâ€™s widely believed the 40-year-old will be appointed as the assistant coach of the Black Stars after Kwesi Appiah sealed a two-year deal as the permanent boss of the African powerhouse.
The two worked wonders to hand the country their first ever gold medal in football at the 2011 All Africa Games in Maputo.
Coach Konadu looks set to hand Kotoko their first league title in four years after they opened a staggering 14-point lead at the summit of the table following a 2-0 win over Mighty Jets over the weekend.
But the glovesman believes the exit of their boss will affect their ambition next term.
â€œHe (Konadu) treats us like brothers and so weâ€™re very happy what heâ€™s doing for us but I believe that if he leave us, we will suffer next season,â€ Amoako said
â€œHe is a former player and so understands the philosophy of the team and that has played a crucial role in what weâ€™re achieving so far in the league.
â€œIf heâ€™s appointed as the Black Stars assistant coach, it will affect us. We simply donâ€™t want to lose him at this time. Not at all,â€
Kotoko will need all their arsenals to make a huge impact on their return to the African Champions League next season.
