Asante Kotoko have completed their seventh signing ahead of the 2020/21 season after Otumfour Osei Tutu II lifted a transfer embargo he imposed on the club but some top brass at Manhyia Palace are unhappy with the transfer activity of the Porcupine Warriors, SPORTSWorldGhana.com can exclusively report.
Former Bofoakwa Tano defender Andrews Kwadwo Appau is the last name to join Ghana’s most successful football club.
As a matter of fact the decision to lift the self-imposed transfer ban on the team of Maxwell Konadu was not made public but this website understands the powerful Asantehene relaxed his position for CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah and the Kotoko technical team to only make some key additions.
According to SPORTSWorldGhana sources, to sign as many as seven new players whilst allowing players such as Sam Adams, Collins Ameyaw, Empem Dacosta , Richard Arthur, Kelvin Andoh and co to leave is something that is difficult to comprehend especially when the position of the great Asantehene was only relaxed for the team to make high-quality marquee replacement especially star attraction Songne Yacouba who left Kumasi on free transfer following the expiration of his contract.
However, the transfer activity of the club has rather turned out to be wholesale recruitment just as we saw in the previous period of Kwame Kyei where the club signed over 70 different players under just three years – something that prompted the Asantehe to impose a transfer ban on the club after he formed a new board of directors.
Below are the seven arrivals of Asante Kotoko for the 2020/21 season.
