Former Asante Kotoko coach and player Abdul Razak ‘Golden Boy’ has claimed that he is the best person to help the club rediscover their glory days.
Razak ended the Porcupine Warriors ten-year trophy drought in the Ghanaian top-flight in 2003, under the chairmanship of Sylvester Asare Owusu – now Banahene, having last won the league in 1993.
Despite the historic feat, the 1978 African Footballer of the Year resigned from his post – a decision which surprised the majority of the club’s supporters.
Speaking to Pure FM, Abdul Razak disclosed that he is ready to play any role in the team if contacted.
“I am the only man to bring the Asante Kotoko spirit back. They should come back to me. I am ready for any role. I still feel sad about the treatment I had at Kotoko after winning the league for them in 2003,” Coach Abdul Karim Razak said on Pure FM.
The ‘Golden Boy’ as he is affectionately known had three separate spells with Asante Kotoko during his play days, winning three league titles with the club in 1981, 1986 and 1987, having joined the Reds in 1975. He later moved to New York Cosmos in the United States.
