Coach Chisholm meets Kotoko's under-18 side.

International development coach Gordon Chisholm wasted no time in getting out on the training field after touching down in Ghana.

The former Sunderland player is in the country for a week to work with the young players of club partners Asante Kotoko and held his first training session today.

Chisholm is working with the Porcupines' under-18 side and will also take in a game later this week.

The Scot put the young players through their paces and will continue to provide expertise and support to players and coaches.

Chisholm is also set to watch the national side play before heading to South Africa next week to link up with Bidvest Wits.

The trip is part of a burgeoning partnership between Sunderland and Asante Kotoko, who were crowned Ghanaian champions last season.
