Former Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has refuted reports linking him to vacant Asante Kotoko coaching role, can reveal.

The ‘Silent Killer,’ who is currently unattached has been speculated as one of the major candidates to replace Maxwell Konadu as the new coach after the latter was shown the exit on Friday.

According to our sources, Appiah, a former captain of the club, is currently into other businesses including building and construction, hotel facilities as well as estate development and believes these give him comfort and peace of mind.

Aside Appiah, former Ghana assistant coach Ibrahim Tanko and a host of other foreign coaches have been likened to the club.

“There is no way Kwesi Appiah will become the next coach of Asante Kotoko because he is actually not interested at the moment,” a source close to the coach told

“After his contract with Ghana expired, he decided to take time off football and leave the scene for a while because he has been through a lot. Currently, he is doing other businesses which are showing promises and it will be premature to halt all the plans and projections made to become the successor of Maxwell Konadu.

“Everything in this world is possible but this comeback is highly impossible. I believe Kotoko will look elsewhere,” the source added.

Kotoko will face Dreams FC in Ghana Premier League in Dawu on Sunday under the care of interim coach Johnson Smith before they lock horns with Al Hilal Omdurman in Caf Champions League first round first leg encounter in Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday
