Powerful Ashanti King Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to dissolve Kotoko leadership

Otumfuo Osei Tutu 11 to dissolve current leadership

By Patrick Akoto

Life Patron of Asante Kotoko Otumfuo Osei Tutu II will dissolve the current board and management team of the club following their ‘disgraceful’ exit from the CAF Champions, GHANAsoccernet.com understands.

The world respected king is unhappy with the current happenings in the team after they exited Africa’s elite inter-club competition and will make a bold decision on the long-term future of the club in the coming days, GHANAsoccernet.com has gathered.

The two-time African champions were beaten 1-0 by Liberian champions Barrack Young Controllers on Sunday, to exit the competition on the away goal rule.

The defeat has sparked massive row among the teeming fans with unsubstantiated allegations of bribery being thrown at long-standing Burkinabe goalkeeper Abdoulaye Soulama.

There are many who believe the reported damaging bribery scandal is just an attempt by the current leadership to cover up for their crass incompetence and lack of managerial acumen.

Interim manager Samuel Opoku Nti has been accused of doing little to enhance the image and brand of the club since he took over from celebrated Dr Kofi Kodua Sarpong,  practicing what has been termed as ‘school boy’ management.

Players are owed salaries and winning bonuses running into several months due to what many perceived as the poor management practice at the club – a situation which has led to rotten morale among the squad.

Officials have come in for lots of flak for Yahaya Mohammed shocking move to Libyan side Al-Ittihad Tripoli.

The 25-year-old signed pre-contract with the North African side on Tuesday without the club’s consent- in a move which has irked many fans of the Ghanaian heavyweights as it leaves them with nothing.

The ‘lackluster and short-sighted’ administrative style of current management head Samuel Opoku Nti and board chairman Paul Adu Gyamfi have been cited as the chief reasons for the sad turn of event, Kotoko serial callers claimed on a number of radio stations in the capital, Accra.

The player’s move has infuriated their teeming fans who have been left crestfallen again after former striker Kofi Nti Boakye left to join Libyan side Al Ahly Tripoli under similar controversial circumstances last year.

GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal that the contracts of a number of their key players will run out at the end of the season and yet officials have failed in their attempts to renew their deals, which could lead to wholesome departure.

Board chairman Paul Adu Gyamfi has been accused of failing to control fellow member Frank Appiahgyei, leaving their oversight responsibility of the club into total anarchy.

Manhyia  are least enthused with the post CAF Champions League reactions with the powerful king expected to make a statement which will shake the direction of the club, Ghana’s leading football outlet understands.

Calls for the dissolution of the current leadership has reached roof top with angry fans threatening to demonstrate if they are not sacked to save the club from further collapse.

There are fears their recent downward confidence could affect their Ghana Premier League title defense.

The Porcupine Warriors travel to Tarkwa to face Medeama in an outstanding Premier League match on Thursday, desperate to restore some hope for the disjointed front.

    I am surprised by the comments above. As if u guys don’t know, wait for some few days and this same useless website will come up with another story to say this story is untrue. If you the story very well, its a classical example of figment of imagination on the part of the writer just because kotoko failed to qualify for next stage. This baseless rumours keep on reducing the credibility of this site because they will later come up with a story claiming its from manyhia palace to squash this story. And for your information, it is never true that the players are owed any salary. It may be true about some of their bonuses but for salary its not true. u can confirm from footy-ghana.com
