The former Asante Kotoko coach was appointed assistant to Kwasi Appiah in 2012 and partnered him for 2013 AFCON in South Africa and 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Konadu was also the stop-gap manager when Appiah was sacked in September 2014, and led the team to qualify for the 2015 AFCON in Equatorial Guinea before Avram Grant was appointed in December 2014 to lead the team to the tournament.
