The Ghana FA has appointed Dreams FC coach Abdul Karim Zito as boss of the U-17 male team, the Black Starlets
Zito, an ex-footballer, comes with a wealth of experience in handling the youth. He has previously worked as coach for the country’s two biggest clubs – Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak.
Zito was the deputy to veteran coach Malik Jabir during the 2015 All Africa Games in Brazzaville. He succeeds Paa Kwesi Fabin who held the Black Starlets job since October 2011.
Another ex-international, Yaw Preko who has been unattached since leaving Nigeria’s Ifeanyi Ubah FC four months ago, has also been named assistant to Zito.
