Nana Yaw Amponsah, the CEO of Asante Kotoko, has responded to critics who accuse him of profiting from player transfers at the club.
He refuted these claims by highlighting that his commission from player sales amounts to over 200,000 euros since assuming his role, indicating that he does not stand to gain significantly from bringing players to Kotoko.
Speaking to Wontumi Sports, Nana Yaw Amponsah emphasized his financial track record and questioned the notion that he benefits personally from player transfers.
“I’ve sold players and have made over 200,000 euros as commission, so how much will I gain for bringing a player to Kotoko?”, he told Wontumi Sports.
His statement aimed to counter the accusations and showcase his commitment to the club’s success rather than personal gain.
Appointed as the CEO of Asante Kotoko SC in August 2020, Nana Yaw Amponsah has worked with multiple coaches during his tenure. Under his administration, the club secured one Premier League title and participated in the CAF Champions League, unfortunately being eliminated in the preliminary round by RC Kadiogo after a penalty shootout.
Nana Yaw Amponsah holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Political Science from the University of Ghana. He also obtained a Master’s degree in Sports Law and Practices from the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom.
Asante Kotoko currently occupies the fourth position on the league table in the 2022/23 betPawa Premier League, accumulating 51 points. They will conclude their season by hosting Dreams FC at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Saturday, June 11.
