Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko, Mr. George Amoako has called on the innumerable supporters of the club to continue cheering the team by putting aside the impending exit of poster boy Songne Yacouba.
The Burkinabe attacker has attracted interest from Zambian giants ZESCO United who are willing to take the former Satde Malian striker to the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola following his exploits in the CAF Confederation Cup.
Kotoko tweeted on Monday that it had agreed to open negotiations with Zesco United for the services of winger Emmanuel Gyamfi and Songne Yacouba.
This has brought despondency among the fans who believe the club cannot do without their talismanic striker, but their CEO thinks otherwise.
George Amoako stressed that there is no player bigger than the former African champions hence no need for the fans to panic about Yacouba’s likely departure.
“Yacouba wasn’t the Yacouba we see today before signing for Kotoko and no club was even willing to sign him but he became who he is today when he was imparted by the spirit of Kotoko.
‘’It’s Kotoko that is Kotoko but not the player. The spirit of Kotoko can enter into any player and he will play at his best.
‘’So Yacouba or no Yacouba, Kotoko is still Kotoko and that’s why I am urging the fans to come and cheer the team and will get another Yacouba in no time.” the experienced administrator concluded.
Asante Kotoko who are on top of the NC Special Cup in Zone A will face Regional rivals Ashgold at the Baba Yara Sports on Wednesday.
