Yusif Chibsah, a former midfielder for Asante Kotoko, has begged Manhyia to give the new board and management at least five to ten years to run the club.
His remarks follow the dissolution of the board of directors under Dr. Kwame Kyei’s leadership and the management under Nana Yaw Amponsah’s leadership after the completion of their three-year terms.
Before the commencement of the 2023–24 Ghana Premier League season, a new board and management are anticipated to be selected. Chibsah believes the previous mistakes of granting three mandates must not be repeated.
Manhyia needs to think about staying for at least five to ten years, in his opinion.
“The club will not benefit from Asante Kotoko’s management and board serving three-year terms. Kotoko was where we are now three years ago, he said, speaking to Kumasi’s Oyerepa FM.
I’m asking Manhyia to give the incoming board and management at least five and ten years since we’ve tried this approach two or three times and it hasn’t worked.
“This period will assist in putting policies and plans into place to help him reach his objectives. “Three years is too little time in football,” he continued.
In contrast, Asante Kotoko finished the 2022–23 Ghanaian football season without a trophy.
