Asante Kotoko will be prepared for the 2018 Ghanaian football season, according to James Kwesi Appiah, one of the four members of the IMC.
Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the club’s life patron, has appointed a four-member Interim Management Committee (IMC) to oversee operations before the start of the new season following the dissolution of the 12-member board of directors led by Dr. Kwame Kyei and the management led by Nana Yaw Amponsah.
Among them is Nana Apinkra Akwasi Awua, a chartered accountant and the Kontomponiaferehene.
James Kwesi Appiah, the previous coach of the Black Stars, Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum, the new head coach, and Emmanuel Newton Dasoberi, the administrative manager round up the group.
Kwesi Appiah is confident that the Porcupine Warriors will be prepared for the campaign, albeit acknowledging that his team confronts a difficult assignment in the upcoming season.
In an interview with Akoma FM, he said, “The season will not be easy for Kotoko but once we have a substantive coach, he (the Coach) will be looking at players who will be leaving and then recruit new ones as a replacement.”
Although I believe the team should be prepared after six weeks of intense training, it’s sad that some of the players are in the national camp (Black Galaxy). But we’ll start with those who are on hand while making sure the rest of the team is getting the support it needs.
In the 2022–23 Ghana Premier League season, the Porcupine Warriors came in fourth place. As the club continues to be reorganized, the team has withdrawn from the forthcoming GHALCA Top 4 competition.
