Asante Kotoko spokesperson Obed Acheampong has dismissed reports claiming coach Paa Kwesi Fabin has quit the club.
According to reports in the local media, the former U-17 coach had stepped down due to the club’s poor form in this season’s Ghana Premier League.
The Porcupines had high hopes of winning the title but after 11 matchdays, they find themselves 10th on the standings six points behind leaders AshantiGold.
“I left camp 30 mins ago and the coach was there when I was leaving, don’t know where those reports are coming from,” Obed told a close source.
Fabin joined the Porcupine Warriors at the start of the season following the sacking of Englishman Steve Polack.
The Reds had a dream start to the campaign as they picked a draw at Sogakofe Red Bulls Arena against WAFA – a game in which they made history by scoring their first goal at the ground.
However, subsequent games proved hectic for the 23-time league champions.
Coach Fabin tasted his defeat at home against bitterest adversaries Hearts of Oak last Sunday but what broke the camel’s back was when the side lost 3-1 to league newcomers Karela FC the following Wednesday.
In the aftermath of the game, coach Fabin stated that his side were lucky to have come out with that scoreline and thanked goalkeeper for keeping the scoreline respectable.
