Asante Kotoko’s dismal run of form seems to have driven club Chairman Dr Kwame Kyei to the very edge.
A meeting between Dr. Kwame Kyei, technical team and the playing body saw the business mogul using unprintable words and insults on the players as he told anyone that knows they cannot play for the club to leave.
The catalyst for the meeting came after Kotoko took a shock defeat and early exit out of the MTN FA Cup against lower division side Asokwa Deportivo in Obuasi last Sunday.
However, retired Ivorian and Arsenal star, Emmanuel Eboué has waved into the recent ‘insults’ directed towards the playing and technical team by Dr. Kwame Kyei while indicating that it is something that happens sometimes.
“The president can get angry against the players and the technical team but he can’t sack the players. Never and never because they have a contract with the club. Maybe the president can amend them,” Eboue said in an interview with Kumasi-based Ashh FM.
“You know some presidents of the clubs when they get angry they can insult players badly even some coaches also insult the players when they get angry but they can’t sack players”, Eboué said.
Dr. Kwame Kyei was appointed as the new Kotoko Executive Board Chairman in 2016. He arrived with a glowing profile as CEO of Unity Oil Company Limited, Light FM, Light TV, Vision1 FM, Sports Hotel.
Under his tutelage, the Porcupine Warriors have won the FA Cup title. The chairman has also had seven different coaches: Michael Osei, Croatia Zdravko Logarušic, Steven Polack, Paa Kwesi Fabin, Charles Akonnor, Norway Kjetil Zachariassen and Ghana Maxwell Konadu.
