The Porcupine Warriors would have to jump over another financial hurdle few days after clearing themselves at Fifa
Asante Kotoko are reported to be in another financial tussle with Club Consult Africa, an agency owned by former player Yussif Alhassan Chibsah.
Reports in the local media suggest that Kotoko owe Chibsah’s company a sum of $59,000 which include $30,000 as agency fee for brokering Kwame Conte Bonsu’s deal to Esperance Sportive du Tunis as well as $29,000 meant for securing a deal for former striker Abdul Fatawu Safiu to Swedish Superetan side Trelleborgs in 2019.
However, reports suggest that Kotoko are bent on not paying the money because Strike, which is a kit manufacturing company and provides kits for the club is also under Club Consult Africa, are yet to pay the Kumasi-based club their dividends from the sales of jerseys and other souvenirs since entering in an agreement two seasons ago.
Kotoko’s top hierarchy believes that they have given Strike the needed mileage and support to become a good brand in Ghana and Africa at large while participating in Caf Champions League and Confederation Cup and deserves their share of the dividends.
