The club owner and life patron of Asante Kotoko, Otomfuo Osei Tutu II earlier today in his address read by Chief of Staff at the Manhyia Palace, Kofi Badu directed that the club should not recruit any player for at least one season.
“Kotoko management is not allowed to sign a new player for the first team for one year and that is an order by the club patron”, Kofi Badu said in the club’s inaugural board meeting.
Reacting to the news, club manager Maxwell Konadu has said he will plead with his Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to allow the club to sign new players when the need arises.
“It’s a decision from the high office of the club and it won’t be rigid to plead for one or two recruitments”, Konadu told Oyerepa FM.
“If the need be to buy players, we will plead with Manhyia to allow us to purchase one or two but if we realize what we have is okay, we will move on”, he added.
The club has signed 83 players in the last three years.
