“I’m available now” – Paa Kwesi Fabin open to coaching Kotoko or Hearts again

Former Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Paa Kwesi Fabin has offered his services to both clubs.

The experienced trainer is unattached again after running down his season-long contract with Dormaa-based Aduana FC.

Fabin ended the 2022/23 season in disappointing fashion, leading the Ghana Premier League for long spells before relinquishing the title race to eventual champions Medeama SC in the final weeks

Speaking to Akoma FM, the 63-year-old expressed his availability to enter talks with his old employers who are in the hunt for a head coach concurrently.

“I signed a one-year contract with Aduana, and it’s over now. I don’t know what the future holds for me at the moment.”

“Of course, coaching is the job I do for a living, so definitely any team that seeks my services, whether Kotoko or Hearts, I’m available now. If any of them approach me, we will discuss it, and if an agreement is reached, I will take over,” he said.

Fabin has a reputation for developing young players and having excellent tactical knowledge, making him an attractive prospect for any football club in Ghana.

His willingness to rejoin Asante Kotoko or Hearts of Oak comes as no surprise, given his penchant for re-entry into former jobs. Working with Aduana for the 2022/23 season was his second spell at the club.

With Kotoko, Fabin has been head coach twice already, managing the side between September 2009 and April 2010 and returning in February 2018 to spend almost 7 months.

These two bossing stints were preceded by assistant coach roles under German trainers Ernst Middendorp and Hans Dieter-Schmidt who both he helped to win the Ghana Premier League.

Fabin also coached the Phobians between June 2010 and January 2011. He led Hearts to win the MTN Top 4 Challenge.

Currently, both Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak are looking for a new boss to take over the reins after finishing the season with assistant coaches Abdulai Gazale and David Ocloo respectively, in acting capacities. Fabin’s return could be a solution to their search.

Samuel Paa Kwesi Fabin has also had coaching stints with Berekum Arsenal, Heart of Lions FC, Wassaman United, Inter Allies FC, the Ghana U-17 and U-23 male national teams, and Uganda U-20s.
