Confusion Hits Kotoko Management
The two-time African Champions, Kumasi Asante Kotoko, is currently going through turmoil, THE PUBLISHER SPORTS can state.
Checks by the paper have revealed that there is total disunity and confusion in the current Kotoko management, which is led by Dr. Kwame Kyei.
According to the sources in Kotoko all is not well with Kotoko, especially at the management level and it would automatically affect team’s delivery.
Dr. Kyei is said not to be happy about the performance of some of the management members of the club, so far.
Grapevine information indicated that Dr. Kyei seemed let down by some of the management members, who he personally trusted so much.
The Kotoko boss believes that those management members gave him wrong advice, which contributed to Kotoko losing money at will.
And instead of Dr. Kyei being bold to sack those management members, he has rather maintained them and decided not to engage them.
This approach by Dr. Kyei, has led to the sidelining of people like Lawyer Yaw Boafo, Kotoko Lawyer and Tom Grugger, Kotoko Accra representative.
They said some of management members want to resign but they are afraid they may incur the wrath of Kotoko owner, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene.
I AM NOT KOTOKO’S GM
Meanwhile Nana Akwasi Gyemibi, popularly known as ‘Coker’, has vehemently debunked rumours that he is presently acting as Kotoko’s General Manager (GM).
“I am not Kotoko’s General Manager as is being spread around the sporting circles, so treat those wild rumours with contempt”, he indicated.
For the records, Coker is the Personal Assistant (PA) of the current Kumasi Asante Kotoko Executive Board Chairman, Dr. Kwame Kyei.
There have been rumours within the Kotoko family that Coker was clandestinely acting as the Kotoko General Manager nowadays.
But in a sharp rebuttal, Coker stated categorically that there is no iota of truth in the wild speculations, which are meant to create enmity for him.
“I am not Kotoko’s Managing Director, I am just the errand boy of Dr. Kwame Kyei, who after his appointment by Otumfuo, appointed me as his PA”, he said on Nhyira fm.
