Bogdan Korak remains the only foreign trainer for Kotoko to beat Hearts of Oak in a league clash.

German coach Ernest Middendorp had last done it for Asante Kotoko in 2001 when the Porcupine Warriors defeated Hearts of Oak 2-0 in Kumasi to avenge their 2-1 loss in the May 9th disaster.

Ian Porterfield who replaced Middendorp drew 1-1 in Kumasi and lost 0-3 against the Phobians in Accra in 2002.

Maurice Cooreman came to Asante Kotoko with much expectation but the 2-1 home defeat his side suffered against Hearts of Oak on match day 9 shattered his dreams and was sacked afterwards. Hearts of Oak were at the time handled by Kosta Papic, who was also an expatriate.
