Kumasi Asante Kotoko once again failed to get results that will ensure qualification into the elusive group stage of the Caf elite club competition the Champions league after been eliminated by Tunisian side Etoile du Sahel.

The Porcupine warriors traveled to Tunisia with a healthy two nil advantage but conspired to lose three nil to a ten man Etoile du Sahel side.

Etoile were reduced to ten men with twelve minutes to end proceedings and at two nil down the porcupine warriors could not hold the Tunisians sides even to a penalty shoot out and suffered a sucker punch in the 85th minute.

Since then, the Norwegian has been under intense pressure following his failure to qualify to the group stage despite a healthy two nil lead.

To add insult to injury his post game comments about the Champions league not been Kotoko's level has always not gone down well with most fans of the team with rumours that the club are in talks with a German gaffer to take over.

But special assistant to the Executive Chairman, Yves Nana Gyimbibi Coker says that the rumours about the eminent sacking of Kjetil Zachariassen are unfounded.

"Hearing Zachariasson's imminent sack rumor makes me a bit nervous. Who could possibly deliver such falsehoods to deceive the masses like that? Kotoko fans are however entreated to discard the rumour"
