Avid Asante Kotoko fan Kojo Addae-Mensah implores club owner Otumfuo to lease club to football business firm

Published on: 20 April 2017

Chief Executive Officer of DataBank Group Kojo Addae-Mensah believes Asante Kotoko will be far off better in the hands of an established football business firm than its current handlers.

Addae-Mensah, who is a sports enthusiast and an avid supporter of the Porcupine club believes the structures of the club are not working properly hence the time has come for its the life patron, Osei Tutu II to lease the club to a prominent football business firm for the next ten years to bring back the glory days.

 "I have said time and time again that Kotoko's problem is its structure. This business of a philanthropic executive chair can't work in the 21st century,” he wrote on his Facebook wall.

"We must lease the team to a football business akin to the Fenway group at Liverpool and let them run it for 10 years."

"Otumfuo keeps certain rights, like colors, logo, home base etc to avoid the Cardiff and wimbledon issue. Otherwise we will keep going round in circles."

Kotoko is currently under the supervision of astute business man Dr. Kyei a move Kojo Addae-Mensah is not in support of.

    Exactly my point but Kotoko and hearts plus Oly and Goldfields have been given to inexperience people to run, Aduana Stars is even better managed than these three clubs. The second issue is the GFA structure, poor poor. How can you have your board filled with team owners???? How do you expect the League to survive. Stay at GHALCA or leave your club to be part of GFA. Or corruption and cheats wont make it attractive for the like of Twum of Multi-media, Despite, Kenpong and others to waste their hard earned money on the corrupt league.
