Kotoko’s Augustine Sefah signs contract extension


The defender has signed a new deal with the Porcupine Warriors after impressing new coach

Asante Kotoko defender has penned down a one-year contract extension with the club few weeks after he was given another opportunity to train with the first team.

Following the sacking of former boss Kjetil Zachariasen, Kotoko initially made plans not to renew the defender’s contract but new coach Maxwell Konadu had other plans for him and he has grabbed that opportunity successfully.

“We are pleased to announce that defender, Augustine Sefah has signed a one-year contract extension with the club,” a club statement.

“The player, who is known to be a big game player, signed the new deal at the club secretariat in Kumasi on Monday. The right-back’s initial two-and-a-half contract was set to expire on December 31, 2019, but his new deal will keep him at the Baba Yara Stadium until December 2020,” the statement added.

Sefah was full of praise to his coach and promised to prove his worth this season in the league and other competitions.

“I want to thank the coach and the management for the confidence they have shown in me,” Sefah said.

“I have given my hundred per cent to this club and promises to increase it even more. Aside from the game, we have got players that need some leaders in the dressing room and my other colleagues and I will play that role very well.”

Although he didn’t feature in Kotoko’s 1-0 home victory over Eleven Wonders on Sunday, he is likely to make his first appearance under Konadu on Friday when they travel to play Legon Cities FC.
