Business heavyweights Osei Kwame (Despite) and Samson Deen have made cash contributions to Asante Kotoko in their efforts to raise funds to offset debts.
The Kumasi-based club is saddled with recently incurred Fifa fines for bridges in transfer procedure in the sale of players in the past and also for the wrongful sacking of German Hans Dieter Schmidt in 2005.
The donations of Osei Kwame who has holdings in the media and entertainment industry of 6000 Ghana cedis while Deen who is Chief Executive of leading travel and tour firm; African Origin contributed $1000 couldn’t have been better timed.
The club in-turn expressed their profound gratitude in the gesture as they look to rope in more funds to deal with the incurred liabilities.
“The club intends making further payments to the aggrieved parties and therefore the contributions from these gentlemen very timely,” the club’s spokesperson Listowell Bukarson told GHANAsoccernet.com.
Kotoko who have just won the Ghanaian top flight with four games to spare are to cough up in excess of 130,000 Euros or risk Fifa sanctions.
