Longest serving Asante Kotoko player Stephen Oduro has eventually consented to the club’s management about his retirement package.

After a series of meetings between Oduro and the Dr Kwame Kyei’s led administration the dynamic midfielder has agreed to accept the retirement package from the club to him.
Part of the package includes the player having a lifetime monthly financial claims after his retirement for his service to the club. Oduro will also be put on a coaching course by the club and will have a first option to return to the club after his studies.
