Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum has penned a heartfelt goodbye message to Asante Kotoko following his departure from the club.

The 44-year old earlier this week officially tendered in a resignation letter after just a year with the club.

Per reports, Ogum decided to part ways with the club due to a misunderstanding with the Management team led by club Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Nana Yaw Amponsah.

In a press statement, Ogum thanked the Fabulous family for the love and support they’ve shown to him throughout his tenure with the club.

He also described his departure as the best interest of the club and went further to apologize to the Porcupine family, hoping that their paths cross again.

The full statement read:

My journey at Kotoko was short lived but the varied experience during this period will always remain dear. The passion, warmth and love I was welcomed with made me feel at home.

Indeed, my dream of becoming a Kotoko coach, which I constantly told my students, had come to reality. Though enthused about joining one of the biggest clubs in Africa, I knew I was brought there for a reason. The mission was to deliver.

Our journey, as a team, met some obstacles when we lost some matches and missed out trophies, but we continually enjoyed the unflinching support of the fabulous family and soared.

The backing of our supporters over memorable wins at Dormaa, Tarkwa and Sogakope made us feel like champions. Our efforts were crowned with winning the Ghana Premier League after eight (8) years making Kotoko the best club for the season.

Taking Kotoko to Africa and defending the league trophy was my aim, but it is regrettable that I must leave midstream. I believe my depature is for the best interest of the Club.

I extend my warmest appreciation to His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu Il, the Board and Management of the Club for the opportunity, belief and trust reposed in me and my team and made my dream a reality.

To the Technical and Medical Team, the Legends as well as the Playing Body, I am most grateful for your support.

To the supporters, I doff my hat to you. You truely stood with me and sincerely inspired me. I have always felt loved, cherished, and valued. Your passion for the club was my inspiration. If any action of mine caused any pain,

I am sorry. You are and will remain family! Truthfully, I am humbled and hope our paths cross again.

Spread the love
