Mass player exodus may get Asante Kotoko relegated – J E Sarpong

Ghanaian veteran coach Joseph Emmanuel Sarpong has expressed concerns over the mass exodus of players at Asante Kotoko SC.


The Porcupines have parted ways with over 20 players in the last couple of days and expected to make 14 new additions.

This follows the team’s disappointing season, finishing sixth in the domestic top-flight.

Sarpong warned that the lack of stability stemming from such transfer policy could see the club drop to the lower tier.

“It will affect the team. They’ve been sacking players every season. Where is the stability? He quizzed in an interview with Mothers FM.

“Ogum sacked eleven players when he came and brought another eleven but they struggled. We have to keep some old players. We know how players are.

“For example, Amankona was bought from Chelsea to Kotoko because of his scoring prowess but he returned to Berekum to win the golden boot. It means there is something basically wrong with. They will go to relegation if they don’t take care,” he added.

Kotoko are chasing players including Bofoakwa Tano caption Saaka Dauda as they hope to strengthen their squad for next season.
