Lugarusic, who was unveiled as Kotoko boss in early January, has made known his intentions to build a winsome team capable of winning trophies.

The 23-time Ghana Premier League champions have failed to win any major trophy in the last two years, and were beaten to the domestic league title by first-time winners Wa All Stars.

But the Croatian coach insists his ambition is turn the club into title challengers once more, insisting the glory days will be back if his players can put in the desired effort.

In his first meeting with the players  and technical team of Kotoko at the club’s Adoko Jachie training ground, Coach Lugarusic insisted that the players “have to improve” in order to change the club’s fortunes.

"Kotoko is for trophies; league and cups and you have your bonuses as you win. We are not here for fun. I don’t know all of you but I know names. I’ve heard a lot of good things about you. We can't do it if you wouldn't help us to do it,” he told the club’s official website.

The former Ashanti Gold gaffer added: "African players are gifted with skill. You can do anything with the ball, you can do whatever you want with it. My job is to teach you how to run and think at the same time. You have to run and think at the same time. You have to improve on your running in the game without the ball and with the ball."

Zdravko Lugarusic took over as coach of the Porcupine Warriors from Michael Osei who was appointed in an acting capacity last season. The Croat has, however, decided to retain the services of Osei as his assistant coach.
