Asante Kotoko board member Kofi Abban has been exciting himself with past glories of the Porcupine Warriors as he campaigns for Ghana’s most successful football club to get back to the proper state where they belong.
Asante Kotoko is on a rebuilding mission after the three-year tenure of Kwame Kyei as Kotoko executive chairman came to an end and a new board of directors installed by the powerful Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II.
Since his appointment to as Kotoko board member by Otumfour , Abban has been loading his Twitter page with old pictures of Asante Kotoko of the 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s and wants the team of Abdul Razak, Opoku Afriyie, Baba Yara and co to become the great club they were.
Mr. Abban who has been tweeting with the hash tag #LetsMakeKotokoGreatAgain has not been talking alone but he walks the talk. He present some gifts to the muslim players of the club during the Edr Adha celebration just last month and has reportedly handed a car each to head coach Maxwell Konadu and CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah.
” In 1982, Asante Kotoko lost the Africa Cup final to Al Ahly. 12 months later, we were back in the final against the same Al Ahly. This time, we said no more, winning 1-0 in Kumasi lift the cup. A resilient Kotoko is a successful Kotoko. ” the enthusiastic Abban wrote on Friday afternoon.
