Desailly ready to serve Kotoko should Otomfuo come calling, but says there needs to be improvement in certain fields before

Posted by

France legend Marcel Desailly has stated that he wouldn’t hesitate to answer Otumfuo’s call if he’s offered an opportunity to serve Asante Kotoko in future.

The Porcupine warriors last month parted ways with George Amoako, the club since then has been on the hunt for a new CEO.

Desailly, who’s a staunch Kotoko fan in an exclusive interview with FootballMadeInGhana was quizzed if he would be interest in filling the vacant position

“For sure I’m ready for our King but it’s not really like this. It’s more about a plan. We talk about infrastructure, Kotoko have been in the system since 1935 but don’t have a stadium of their own, proper structures, I cannot come at this stage.

“You need to be able to reach a certain stage before a guy like me can enter into the system. Otumfuo needs to educate the people he delegates more to do the work and do it correctly and make sure the club becomes a well respected club.

“When I came in Ghana in 1989 it was my first time back since I left in 1972 and I heard Ashanti Kotoko. At the time our local League was buzzing and people filled the stadiums. Kotoko was the first name I heard and that’s why it’s one of the reasons I support the club. Kotoko is something very special and they are the known one. The name is high but what is connected to the name and the fame is not enough”

Desailly was born in Ghana, but he moved to France at the age of 4 and featured for the French National team. He won 116 caps for national team and was part of the team that won the World Cup in 1998 and the Euros in 2000.
