It is Zachariassen rule: nine to ten times a week training sessions. That is all it takes for the Norwegian coach to know whether a player is good enough to make it into his squad. Whether he has that desire, that hunger, that drive. Or whether he has to go. It is that ruthless.
Newly appointed Asante Kotoko Coach Kjetil Zachariassen is coming out with a rigid training regime to make his players ‘look good’ before their CAF Champions League campaign kick starts.
The Norwegian trainer had his first training session on Monday at the Adako Jachie training complex where he introduced himself to the playing body and members of the technical.
The former Ashgold gaffer addressing his charges after seeing off his first training session with the team, advised the players to indulge in personal training after their group training.
Kjetil Zachariassen is taking over from C.K Akonnor who steered the club to the CAF Confederation Cup group stages last season.
Kotoko have already signed eight new players to boost their squad ahead of the CAF Champions League.
