Asante Kotoko have hired Croat Zdravko Logarusic as substantive head coach.

The 54-year-old UEFA Pro License holder joins the Porcupine Warriors on a two-year deal.

Logarusic is no stranger to Ghana football having previously managed two Ashanti region-based clubs – King Faisal (2009/10) and Ashanti Gold (2010/11).

He moved on to take up the job at Gor Mahia before ending up with AFC Leopards – all in Kenya. He also managed Tanzania’s Simba SC in between his two stints in Kenya.

Logarusic’s last job was at Interclube of Angola just last year.
