Recently, reports have been speculating around the Internet highway and it’s suburbs about the possible resignation of Asante Kotoko Sporting Clubs Head Coach Dr. Narteh Ogum after just ten months stay with the club.
The tactician joined the porcupine warriors prior to last season from Sogakope based West Africa Football Academy.In his first season with Kotoko, the coach has achieved a lot for the club by clinching the ultimate league title for the club with a whooping 11 points gap between Kotoko and the second placed team.
Despite him yet to submit an official resignation letter to the club, Espn-reports.com can confidently report that the 44 year old will leave the club despite expressing his desire to stay at the club not so long ago.
Last season with Kotoko, the coach managed to build a healthy environment between himself and the players and the management of the team as well as the board of directors of the club. So what could possibly be the exact main reasons for his departure. In this write up, we have put up comprehensive reports on the reasons for resignation of the former Ebusua Dwarfs manager.
*Per reports, Asante Kotoko currently owes it’s technical team unpaid salaries of about two months. The coach is intolerant of this because the club earlier this season pledged to the coach nothing like that is going to happen.
The clubs inability to fulfill promises before the arrival and duration of Coach Ogum is also a factor that has led to the manager’s desire to resign. It’s reported that the club promised him of very good accommodation and welfare facilities but the manager is not satisfied with how Kotoko are delivering the promise.
The former Elmina Sharks gaffer is unsatisfied with the way and manner transfers at the club are being done. He believes he has to play an integral part in the recruitment of new players into the team but the club only gives him a minor role when it comes to recruiting players. The board and management majorly decide the players the club should sign whiles he should be well consulted when it comes to transfer issues of the club.
blessonemps have also gathered that, the coach is unsatisfied with the player Exodus that has hit the club. He believes the players should have been kept ahead the Caf Champions league campaign but the management have allowed some key players to leave including -Mudasiru Salifu -Fabio Gama -Richmond Lamptey(Banned) -Kwame Baah(contract expires soon). After the exit these players, more others will also leave.
Another speculations ongoing states that the board and Management wants to bring on board a technical director ahead next season but the coach also made his stands that he does not need any technical director as he already has two assistants in name of Johnson Eduafo and David Ocloo who’s contracts are tied with that of Ogum therefore if Ogum leaves, they follow him.
The following reasons are could possibly be the reasons for the Coache’s departure. Bismark Kobby Mensah and Bechem United’s Kassim Ocansey mingle could be potential targets for Kotoko if they finally accept the resignation as reported by some media outlets. The Black Galaxies assistant coach could probably move outside Ghana for a new adventure
