The search for a new CEO at Asante Kotoko continues, the club earlier this month announced the end of George Amoako’s tenure as CEO of the club.
Since then, the Porcupine warriors have been on the hunt for a new CEO as the club hopes to look into a new direction. As the club aims at winning trophies again and doing well in Africa like the club previously did in the 70’s and 80’s.
Speaking in an interview with Kumasi FM, Cudjoe Fianoo who has vast experience working in the same position at Ashanti Gold has stated that he will be honored to be consulted by Asante Kotoko to help appoint a new CEO.
“Which direction does the new board want to go; do they want to develop their own players to feed the senior team and will the supporters be patient in rebuilding the team for five years before winning trophies?”, Cudjoe Fianoo queried.
“They do not have an academy now, building the facilities is a whole thing on it own. How are they going to do the recruitment into the academy? In Ashgold we encountered a lot of problems in recruiting players.”
“The board must have someone who has the experience in running an academy. They must also get a winner who has a winning mentality because the supporters will demand for trophies.
“The board must be patient in their search for a CEO, they will get a very competent person in Ghana. Looking at the perimeters it is not an easy job, it is a tall mountain to climb”, he continued.
“Looking for a CEO, they must look for an all-rounder. Not a CEO who will win matches in Ghana but fail in the African Club competitions. It shouldn’t be a wishful thinking only on paper. The board must be patient and appoint someone who has the contact.”
“It will be an honour to be consulted in appointing a good CEO for the club. We are all wishing for the development of football. I am ready to help every club if called upon”, he added.
The GHALCA chairman was later quizzed if he will accept the position should he be called upon.
“If called upon to serve as the CEO, I will decide what to do.”
