    I totally agree with you. He wouldn't give monies to the so called sports journalists for them to sing his music hence the hatred on him. You are 100% right he's the best that has happened to KOTOKO in the past 20yrs. He helped re-brand KOTOKO but most those stomach journalists will not allow KOTOKO to progress. Today is one of my saddest days as a KOTOKO fan. Now you will see how people will enrich themselves, they will man gates at the stadium and start pocketing gate proceeds for the Club this they couldn't do when K.K took over.

    oh,poor Kotoko is to suffer one more season again, I think the team has to taste relegation before the supporters can I understand why they don't have stadium after 100 yrs.If you don't sell,how can you get money for developemental project,to move the club forward.

    To the fans, those who were hidden behind and been used constantly by some past Board members should now come and run the club. Some of us are going to match u boot for boot. I swear, this time no one except Otumfuo himself will be allowed to run the club. Fire on the mountain!!

    Its very amazing that with all the money raked in through corporate attachment, I wonder why the season ended with players and coach unpaid. Where did the sponsorship go? Or he was just throwing dust into our eyes. I think these are the things he has to explain. Also, he sold some players who are now suffering. Of what use was the transfer then? In spite of these shortcomings, I believe he is dealing with a club with more ordinary than elite fans. He should have toned down on the application of strict business principles. I think this has been his nemesis. Nevertheless, I think he has done well.

    all those thinkin n hapi dat Dr kk sarpong has resigned,is a lie.Ben nti jux confirmed on asante kotoko official website dat,he has taken no resignation letter from Dr as speculated by GSN.We ghanaians esp e media shd try n chastise constructively.n he Dr shd also learn how to talk as a leader,if any he shd find himself a PA.@toy journalism,stop this tribalism thin u duin on this is meant to promote peace not to destroy us.long live asanteman.

    Brother its better to check your facts right..Who told you Kotoko owes's anyone in Kotoko be it a player or technical staff member? I can put my chest out and tell you point blank that Team Kotoko doesn't owe anyone a pesewa. I hope you did not get your info from those stomach SSS journalists? Tell me any player in the team right now that will say we owe him money either bonus, monthly salary, or Contractual monies.
