Samuel Anim Addo, agent of youngster Mathew Anim Cudjoe has divulged that his agency is opened to renegotiating with Asante Kotoko over his client.
Anim Cudjoe joined Asante Kotoko on a 6 month loan deal from Division one club Young Apostles in December 2019. The youngster’s contract with the club expired on June 30, 2020.
However, Amin Addo in an interview with Kumasi-based radio station Wontumi Radio and monitored by Myfabulousonline.com revealed his outfit his ready to renegotiate with Kotoko over the youngster.
“Honestly, in the interest of the boy if he wants to play any team in Ghana again then it should be Asante Kotoko, it’s Kotoko’s chance to lose him if they want it that way,” he said
He continued; “If there should be a foreign contract then he will leave but if not then he’s for Asante and everyone knows what my stand is so if Asante doesn’t do the right thing and lose him, I can’t be blamed because it is clear if he wants to play in Ghana again then it is Asante Kotoko.”
Anim Addo after declaring his client is ready to rejoin the Porcupine Warriors revealed that no member of the new Kotoko board has contacted him over the player, but he has only spoken to Maxwell Konadu since the expiration of the youngster’s contact.
“Currently there is no management rather the board and I have not received any call from anyone after the expiration of his contract, so far the only person in Kotoko who keeps in touch is Coach Maxwell Konadu. I am sure they know what to do because they already know what the boy can bring on board and I am open to renegotiating with them,”
He added that a deal will materialize only if the youngster will be given playing time.
“If he is to return to the club, we wouldn’t do politics like he’d travel abroad so we won’t let him play certain games because of his age. This is what gave Maxwell the chance because he assured me he will hand him enough playing time. We will consider a lot of things like his diet, building, development etc before we will think of extending his contract with Kotoko,” he added.
There are also reports swirling around that if Anim Cudjoe is to rejoin Kotoko, then it’ll be on a 6 month loan deal, Anim Addo debunked those claims.
“It’s never true, I have never said that anywhere that we have given Kotoko condition of 6 months if he is to resign with them. As I said, it is open for discussion where we can go further with better terms and conditions where everyone will benefit. I know what the Kotoko platform can do and I also know what what the boy can do and I know the targets ahead of me,” he added.
Anim Cudjoe featured in 6 games for Asante Kotoko in the just annulled league, scoring just once. He’s the youngest player to feature in the “Super clash” or Ghana version of “El Classico” at age 16.
The 16-year-old has already attracted offers from Europe, he recently had a short trial at Bayern München.
