Posted by

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Asante Kotoko Nana Yaw Amponsah failed to show up at a meeting involving himself, Head Coach Prosper Narteh Ogum and the Board of Directors (BoD) of the club.

Last week, Prosper Narteh Ogum reportedly announced his resignation as Head Coach of the team during a zoom meeting. According to reports, he resigned due to a misunderstanding between himself and the management team led by Nana Yaw Amponsah.

The situation prompted the board of the club to schedule a meeting with the two on Monday at the Sports Hotel in Kumasi. However, Nana Yaw Amponsah failed to show up.

“We invited Nana Yaw Amponsah to the BoD meeting today but he did not show up,” said Board member of the club, Baffour Kwame Kusi on Kessben FM.

“The Coach said he is resigning because of what the management has been doing to him over the last few months, that’s what Ogum told us today in the meeting. We are yet to hear from the management, we are waiting to hear from them [management] if what the coach said is true. The issues are resolvable and its possible for the coach to stay.”

He continued: “It wasn’t a board meeting in the first place, the purpose of the meeting was to meet the head coach [Prosper Narteh Ogum] and Nana Yaw Amponsah to know the reason of their differences.

“Fortunately, we met the coach but the Chief Executive Officer Nana Yaw Amponsah failed to show up despite an invitation sent to him earlier by the Board secretary. We have listened to the coach and his reason to resign from the club. We’ll take the final decision after meeting the management “

“You can’t call for an immediate sacking of the coach if you haven’t listened to his reasons for resigning from his position at the club. Those statements are not good because we can’t be sacking coaches without knowing the reasons,” he added.

Meanwhile, Asante Kotoko as part of preparations for the new season will embark on a two-week preseason training in Turkey next month.

The Porcupine Warriors have set sights on retaining the Premier League title and making a statement in the CAF Champions League.
