Spanish coach Antonio Flores interested in Asante Kotoko coaching job

Spanish coach Antonio Flores has expressed interest in Asante Kotoko’s coaching job after immense pressure on Kjetil Zachariassen to resign.

Coach Kjetil Zachariassen has come under a lot of criticism after the failure to qualify the Porcupine Warriors to the group stages of the 2019/20 Caf Confederation Cup.

The Reds were crashed out of Confederation Cup after a 2-0 defeat to San Pedro in Abidjan, losing the tie 2-1 on aggregate, having won the first 1-0 in Kumasi at the Baba Yara Stadium.

Coach Zachariassen is not likely to return to his position as coach of the club, as management is expected to name a new coach ahead of the new season.

Several coaches have been linked with the Ghanaian club but one that seem to be gaining weight is 47-year-old Antonio Flores.

Flores has previously worked in Europe and Africa serving in different roles and capacities.

“I know Kotoko is great club in Africa and would deem it a honour to work with them,” he told kickgh.com

“I am not new to the terrain as i have previously worked in Uganda,Lesotho and South Africa. I have a lot i can bring to the table when i am considered for the job.”

Flores is a UEFA Pro Licence Coaching license holder. He holds a Spanish level 3 coaching Football License, CAF B Licence.

He is a cousin of current Watford manager Sanchez Flores.
