Kotoko partnership deal intact despite Gyan-Sunderland friction

Asante Kotoko insists the acrimonious exit of Asamoah Gyan will not have any bearing on their partnership agreement with Sunderland.

The agreement signed in July will see the English club share it’s coaching and business expertise with the two-time African champions.

However Gyan’s shocking departure to UAE club Al Ain last week has sparked fears relative to a negative effect on the agreement with the Ghana Premier League giants.

“I don’t see how the transfer of a player will have any effect on an existing partnership agreement,” Kotoko’s Spokesman Listowell Yesu Bukarson told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“The fact that a Ghanaian player has left the club under strange circumstances does not at all mean a partnership agreement with a Ghanaian club will be strained.

“As far as we are concerned, the partnership deal is still on and that we are just bidding our time to see as and when it’s implemented.”

The partnership, one of the current Kotoko chairman’s major achievement will also see the Black Cats offer practical support and advice in youth coaching, player development, fitness and medical matters, and football business strategy to the Porcupine Warriors.

    I would not imagine, for one moment, that the arrangement will be compromised in any way.

    This was a commercial agreement entered into between two commercial concerns and I would expect that both would show more integrity than a greedy player!

  3. ath says:

    Well said Phil just because one Ghanaian is a disingenuous turncoat does not mean we should behave in a similar way.

  4. Steeley says:

    I must say I have loved the Ghanaian fans we have made since we had John Mensah, Gyan and Muntari at the club. I am very sad that they have all left now and hope that the fans stick with us! I have learned so much more about Kotoko since the deal was made and think the partnership is ideal for both parties.

    However, if I was a Ghanaian fan (which I still am) surely someone should be ringing up Asamoah and saying “dude get a grip” its a shocking move for Ghana – I just hope you guys have a young striker coming through because the UAE league is about the standard of the English 2nd division?! I think his time as a top class footballer is over prematurely! Its a huge shame
