Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer, Nana Yaw Amponsah has admitted he made a mistake in sacking Maxwell Konadu.
In an interview with Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, the 2019 Ghana FootballAssociation Presidential candidate disclose that he did not inform the board of directors before terminating the contract of the former Black Stars assistant coach.
“I made a mistake for sacking Maxwell Konadu because I did not officially write to inform the board,” Amponsah, was appointed by the board in August, mentioned.
“I admit I am wrong and I accept that. Maxwell Konadu’s records at Kotoko was not bad but it was time for him to go and other big clubs in the world have done that but I again admit I was wrong for not informing the board.
Konadu, a former Kotoko forward, was sacked after their shock 1-0 defeat to Great Olympics. It was Kotoko’s first defeat of the 2020/21 season.
Currently, the club is under the guidance of Johnson Smith until a new head coach is found.
Since Konadu’s departure, Kotoko have been involved in two games which they recorded a win and a defeat. The defeat came in their Caf Champions League clash with Al Hilal in Accra.
The disappointing 1-0 result means Kotoko are on the brink of elimination from the competition at the second round stage.
