Technical Director of the Ghana Federation Francis Oti Akenteng is confident Mas-aud Didi Dramani has what it takes to become a top coach for Asante Kotoko.
The Uefa license A holder is close to sealing a permanent deal to take over from Maxwell Konadu.
Coach Dramani’s lack of club experience has raised doubt about his pedigree to manage arguably the country’s biggest club with demanding followers.
But there are many others who have also touted his man-management and mental toughness with an astute tactical disposition.
He is seen as one of the rising cream of coaches in the West African country with an eye to discover talents and Akenteng believes he can cope with the pressure that comes with managing the Kumasi-based side.
“I think people really do not know Dramani well and that is why some may be right in raising questions,” Akenteng said
“But believe me, he is one of the finest young coaches in the country. Forget about the fact that he is managing Ghana’s under17 female team.
“He is tactically good and knows the job very well. He has gradually emerged as a semi-instructor for the FA and anyone who has sat in his class will tell you about his ability and technical know-how of the game.
He added:” All he needs is the total support from the club’s hierarchy, players and fans to succeed,”
Dramani will guide the Black Maidens to the Fifa Under-17 World Cup in September.
