'Brain Dead' Kjetil Zachariassen facing SACK at Kotoko after Confederation Cup exit

The Ghana Premier League giants have started considering replacement for the Norwegian gaffer after their CAF Confederation Cup elimination, Kickgh.com can exclusively report.

Asante Kotoko are set to terminate their contract with Coach Kjetil Zachariassen after five months.
 
The UEFA licensed coach joined the Kumasi-based club on a three-year deal as replacement for Charles Kwablan Akonnor who faced contract termination in July.
 
Kickgh.com can report that management of Asante Kotoko have decided to end their contract Coach Zachariassen after failing to secure them a place in this year's CAF Champions League and Confederation League group stages.
 
In his three-year contract, Zachariassen was tasked to lead the two-time CAF Champions League winners to the group stage of the competition in his debut season.
 
Kotoko were demoted to the CAF Confederation Cup playoffs round after an elimination in the Champions League by Tunisian side Etoile du Sahel in September.
 
The Porcupines campaign in CAF inter-club competitions ended after losing 2-1 on aggregate to Ivorian club FC San Pedro in the reverse leg tie of the CAF Confederation Cup playoffs round on Sunday.
 
A portion of Zachariassen's contract reads "Kjetil Zachariassen’s contract would see him through the 2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons, and he is expected to lead the Porcupines to the group stage of the Champions League in the first season.
 
"The second-year should also see him qualify the team for the Champions League again with the target of a semi-final berth.
 
"The Champions League qualification is also expected the following year, this time around with a place in the final on the cards.
 
"The Porcupines would take solace in three CAF Confederation Cup campaigns within Kjetil Zachariassen’s three-year period should they fail to make the Champions League mark."
 
"The club, however, expects to win at least one of the three competitions within the period of the relationship with the coach."
 
Zachariassen previously had a short stint with Obuasi Ashanti Gold SC where he guided them to clinch the GFA Normalization Committee Special Competition tier-2 after whipping Kotoko in the final.
