The highest decision making body in Asante Kotoko has rejected reports that the club’s head coach has tendered in his resignation letter
Asante Kotoko board of directors have debunked reports that head coach Prosper Ogum Narteh has resigned from the club.
On Wednesday, reports were wild that Ogum opted to part ways with the club just after ten months in charge.
Kotoko’s management member Emmanuel Newton Dasoberi also confirmed the news in an interview with Daily Graphic, insisting that the coach took the decision following a disagreement with the board on player recruitment.
“During the meeting with the board to discuss his report to the management, there was a disagreement over his request to sack 10 players and recruit 17 new players, including four centre-backs,” explained Emmanuel Newton Dasoberi, the Administration and Operations Manager of Kotoko.
“It was at the point when some members of the board questioned the justification of some of his requests that Coach Prosper Ogum said he had a two-year contract but wanted to move on with his life, so the club must look for a new coach.
“The coach has not formally written to the club about his resignation, but even when some members tried to persuade him to change his mind, his response was that his decision was final,” he added.
But the board has vehemently denied any thing of that sort and has advised the general public to disregard the information.
Ogum guided Kotoko to win 2021/22 Ghana Premier League title and he is now expected to lead them to play in next season’s Caf Champions League
