Otumfuo warns Kotoko IMC not to meddle in Ogum's work

Asante Kotoko owner, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has warned the club’s Interim Management Committee not to barge into the work of head coach Prosper Narteh Ogum.

The Asantehene emphasized on the need to allow Narteh Ogum to have absolute control on player recruitments to enable him build a resilient squad for Kotoko.

Otumfuo stated emphatically that he will not hesitate to sack Narteh Ogum from his job as Asante Kotoko head coach should he fail to reach the tasks given him.

“I have tasked the coach [Nateh Ogum] to recruit the best of players for Asante Kotoko to build a strong team. Kwesi Appiah will serve as the technical director to give out his suggestions. I have told him [Kwesi Appiah] and the rest to get the coach freedom to sign his own players and if he fails, I will sack him. He can be here for long only if he performs”, Otumfuo said during a meeting with the IMC at the Manhyia Palace.

Asante Kotoko have already commenced pre-season training at the Beposo Park in the Ashanti Region.
