It’s knowing your stuff, not having license A–Smith on interim Kotoko role

Asante Kotoko interim coach, Johnson Smith, believes it’s about the ability of a coach to execute his job but not necessarily having a CAF license A certificate.

The former Karela United boss took charge of the Porcupine Warriors when Maxwell Konadu was fired after a poor start to the season, crowned by a defeat to Great Olympics in the Ghana Premier League.

Smith says he won’t be surprised if the club hires a new coach, adding, he’s doing his best for the club at the moment.

”If you know your job as a coach you know, it’s not about having License A,” he told Oyerepa FM. “It’s just a requirement so you can coach a Premier/Division One league club.

”For the job, I am capable and know what I’m about. It’s only that I need the A.”

Per the GFA club licensing regulations, only coaches with CAF License A certificate or its equivalent will be allowed to coach Premier League teams in the country.

“I won’t be surprised if a new coach is appointed as head coach, it’s part of our job. All I know is that I am doing my best,” he added.

He has taken charge of six games for Asante Kotoko since Konadu’s sacking; winning three games in the league and only losing to Al-Hilal in the CAF Champions League preliminary stage in the six games.
