Sunderland officials to visit Kotoko on Friday

Published on: 25 January 2012

Officials of English Premier League side Sunderland will be in Ghana on Friday to meet Asante Kotoko officials.

The visit forms part of the partnership agreement between the two sides.

Kotoko will take the Sunderland executives to the Manhyia Palace to call on the club's Patron His Royal Highness Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

They visit witness the Adarko Jarchie training ground project and the club's secretariat at Odeneho Kwadaso.

The contingent will also be sent to the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

In December last year, Kotoko Executive chairman Dr. K.K Sarpong firmed up the implementation of a partnership agreement.

The agreement will see both parties explore various opportunities of mutual interests.

Kotoko will benefit from the coaching, medical and administrative exchange programs while Sunderland will benefit through the signing of players who excel during trials.

    We have two complete training pitches, we have our own club secretariate, we have our own newspaper that sells more than any sports paper in ghana, we have our website which is updated every half hour, unlike Hearts whose website has been dormant since 2005. We have Otumfuo, we have five bonafide sponsors, we have two replica Africa cups, twenty-one league cups, twelve FA cups, SWAG cups, and numerous others. Above all we have the fans who love their team and a management and Board who know whats' up. Wanna put on you stinking stupid cup and think properly now?

    As a Sunderland supporter I'm glad to see Sunderland supporting clubs not as fortunate as ours around the world, and hope to see more exiting African players at the club, to continue in the recent vain of Mensah & Gyan. Good luck I hope this agreement benefits your club and young players

    I'm a Sunderland fan and this partnership looks like it could be a promising one. I don't know too much about Kotoko but I'm looking forward to seeing their players make it through the Academy.
