Former Managing Director of Hearts of Oak, Neil Armstrong Mortagbe has back a recent statement made by new Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Nana Yaw Ampomsah.
Nana Yaw Ampomsah during his unveiling as new Kotoko CEO stated that none of the two biggest political parties in Ghana can be compared to Asante Kotoko.
“Asante Kotoko is the biggest brand in Ghana, not even a political party can be compared to this club. None of the two biggest Political parties in Ghana can be compared to Kotoko.”
Reacting to the statement that has created controversy in the country, Neil Armstrong Mortagbe has backed the new Kotoko CEO.
“When Nana Yaw Amponsah came he said Kotoko is bigger than NPP and NDC and I believe in him 200%. Hearts and Kotoko are bigger than NPP and NDC. When they go for the elections we see their numbers. If you do a census, arguably nine million Ghanaians will be Hearts fans and same for Kotoko.”
He continued: “They are bigger and must show that they are bigger and not allow politics to affect them. We cannot politics to affect these two clubs. It won’t help our football. The government has a responsibility to create an enabling environment for the game to grow. The government must do its job. The two clubs should not allow politics to get to them,” he ended.
