Mas-aud Didi Dramani has piled the pressure on Kotoko to make their move after revealing he could turn down the offer.
Dramani has reportedly sealed the deal to take over from Maxwell Konadu after holding talks with the club’s Executive Chairman Dr Kofi Kodua Sarpong.
The Uefa license A holder masterminded the Black Maidens qualification to the Fifa Under-17 World Cup to be staged in Azerbaijan in September.
With Kotoko determined to make an impact at next season’s African Champions League, officials are eager to halt any further delay in the appointment of Konadu’s replacement.
But coach Dramani says he will only consider the offer from the Premier League Champions after guiding the Under-17 team to the World Cup in September.
“I think joining Kotoko would be a step up in my career but for now my focus is on the Black Maidens,” Dramani told Finder Sports
“I want to take them to the World Cup and do well. I have had preliminary talks with Kotoko but nothing concrete has been reached yet.
“If we are able to reach an agreement for me to handle Kotoko and the national team for now that will be fine but if I am told to resign to take over before the World Cup then I would turn down that appointment.
“I have heard the rumor that I have been already appointed as Kotoko coach but that is not correct.
“ I have had discussions with Kotoko board chairman K.K Sarpong but nothing yet has been agreed at the moment,”
