Former head coach of Asante Kotoko, Zdravko Logarusic, has stated that the bad run of results for the team which cost him his job was not entire his fault.
Kotoko were winless in four league matches and that forced the management of the club to part ways with Logarusic after just 11 matches into the league season.
Fans were very unhappy at the poor run and their agitations spilled over into their halting of a Kotoko training session on Thursday April 6 ahead of their game against Dwarfs; Logarusic’s last for the team.
Speaking ahead of his departure from Ghana, the former Gor Mahia and King Faisal coach said that the bad results for Kotoko were due to certain factors he had no control of.
“Kotoko is a big challenge but I believe we were on the right track. After 10 games, we were a few points short of the maximum. I am not shifting the blame but some other things caused the bad results.
For example, in our last game, we had two goals disallowed. In the Medeama game, two dubious penalties were called against us. We had a dubious penalty against us when we played Hearts. Then again, we did not score enough goals.
You cannot build Rome in a day or in a month or two or three but I think we were on the right track.
However, you need to respect the decision of the team’s management. Such decisions cannot be easily taken. They can go right or go wrong but what one can do is to respect it and wish the team the best of luck.”
Logarusic’s record was 5 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses making 19 points.
