Former Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer (CEO), George Amoako, has described managing the Porcupine Warriors as a challenging and demanding task. Amoako made these remarks in response to the expiration of Nana Yaw Amponsah’s mandate as CEO, along with the 12-member board of directors.
During his tenure as CEO, Nana Yaw Amponsah implemented various policies that led to the club’s self-sufficiency and its emergence as a prominent media hub for Ghana Football.
Speaking to Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, George Amoako, who is currently an Executive Committee member of the Ghana Football Association, expressed the difficulties involved in leading Asante Kotoko. He stated, “Asante Kotoko is not a simple institution; it is not easy at all to lead the club. They get fed up with you after two years, and everything you do, they will see it with negative eyes.”
Amoako emphasized the need for a thorough examination of the issues surrounding the club. He pointed out that the ad hoc approach to management would make it challenging to address the club’s concerns effectively. Furthermore, he stressed that running Asante Kotoko requires not only financial resources but also a deep understanding of the club’s culture and being a devoted supporter. Amoako highlighted that the club’s success in the past was not solely dependent on wealthy individuals.
The 2022/23 football season concluded without Asante Kotoko securing any trophies, adding to the pressure and expectations on the club.
