Kotoko owner happy with club's administration

Asante Kotoko chairman Dr K.K Sarpong gets owner's backing

Asante Kotoko owner Otumfour Osei Tutu II is content with the running of the club despite some opposition from the fans.

The champions under the leadership of Dr K.K Sarpong is seeing massive infrastructural developments.

The club last month commenced the construction of a three-storey hostel facility for its academy.

The record Premier League champions have also announced plans to put up a club village to fully accommodate its first team players.

Kotoko have also chalked relative success on the field of play with their top flight success last term which sees them make a return to the CAF Champions League.

Some supporters have however expressed displeasure with the ‘lack of transparency and accountability’ especially with the declaration monies realized from the sale of players.

But the club’s owner through his Secretary Owusu Boateng says they are happy with the current administration.

“The great King has been very much satisfied with the progress of the team,” Boateng told Angel FM.

“The club is now even in the process of getting its own club house and we also have our own training grounds.

“The supporters should give the current leadership a chance to steer the club for it is heading in the right direction.”

Boateng however invited disgruntled groups and individuals to come forth with any evidence of wrongdoing in the club’s administration.

“If anyone believes or has evidence of corruption in the club, they are free to come before the owner and make their case,” he adds.

“In the absence of any evidence to that effect, the owner is very happy with Dr Sarpong’s stewardship and I will urge him (Dr Sarpong) to be patient and tolerant as he steers the club.”

    ALL THESE DEVELOPMNTS SPURRED ON BY KK SARPONG ARE USELESS. JUST USE THE MONEY, GO FOR A LOAN AND BUILD KOTOKO A CLUB SADIUM. 45 GRAND SEATER STADIUM ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF KUMASI. IN NO TIME, THE AREAS AROUND THIS STADIUM WILL BECOME PRIME LOCATION FOR DEVELOPMNT. FOR OVER 77 YRS, WE HAVE BEEN USING GOVT STADIUM AS OUR OWN. THIS MUST END TODAY!

      Talk is cheap.Does Kotoko have the capacity to take a huge loan as you talk about to finance the building of those projects you are mentioning? How much will you contribute in the repayment?
      It is a laudable thing you have suggested which I know Dr KK sarpong and his team will gladly do if they have the means.Using government stadium is not a wrong thing.It will be prestigious for the great team to have such facilities on its own,but it is a gradual process.If all the past management has thought about building infrastructures for the team,it would have gotten there by now.It only took a certain Herbert Mensah to bring to fore the need to put in such structures and bring the club up to professional standards.Dr K K Sarpong is a man of vision and has put in all these structures to attain to help Kotoko attain greater heights on and off the field. If he is allowed to steer affairs,he can build a stadium for the club.Supporters must help by patronizing games to help them realize some good revenue to support the day to day running of the club.Putting up infrastructures require capital outlays,which far exceeds the inflows that the club gets from the gates. With the corporate sponsorships coming in due to the good work being done,it will not be a surprise if Kotoko gets its own stadium in the next few years,if this man is allowed to steer affairs.Supporters should look beyond short term results on the field of play and start thinking about long term success of the club.Dr K K sarpong has the vision to make the club what supporters desire of it.He is doing agreat job with his team,he rather needs support and not the ‘pull him down’ syndrome that has brought most of our traditional clubs into their present state.Long live Dr KK Sarpong,Long live Kotoko,long live The King.
