The spokesperson of the Porcupine Warriors has insisted that they took the right decision by terminating the kits sponsorship deal with Club Consult Africa
Asante Kotoko director of communications Moses Antwi Benefo has reiterated that the club’s legal team did no wrong by advising management to mutually terminate the kit sponsorship deal with Club Consult Africa.
Kotoko used jerseys from Strike for the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League and Caf Champions League and they were brought to the club through Club Consult. Reports suggest that Kotoko were making only one cedi per each sale, something that new chief executive officer Nana Yaw Amponsah saw as a poor deal after taking over from the erstwhile administration.
“We handed all existing contracts to our legal team for reviews. We are ready to maintain those that Kotoko benefit from and terminate those that the club doesn’t earn anything from it,” Benefo told Hello FM.
“Kotoko had a contract with Club Consult Africa and not Strike. They were to purchase kits and training apparels for Kotoko.”
“After reviewing the contract with Club Consult Africa, we saw that it was not going to help Kotoko in any way so the contract was unilaterally terminated.
“They can go to court for redress. Now we have taken the decision and we are ready to welcome any decision from Club Consult Africa. Whatever comes up will be channelled to our legal team,” he added.
Kotoko have now signed a three-year contract with European kit manufacturing company Errea and reports in the local media suggest it is an improved deal as compared to the one which the club had with Strike through Club Consult.
