AshantiGold minority shareholder Nana Abankoro Acheampong has confirmed the club's sole financier Dr Kwaku Frimpong has rescinded his decision to quit.

Dr Frimpong, affectionately called Champion, announced his exit last month after fans jeered and booed him after a league match as he was blamed for the team's slump.

He needed police escort to leave the Obuasi stadium with his his G-Wagon Benz SUV following the shock home defeat to Bechem.

''AshantiGold was sold to me and Champion [Dr Kwaku Frimpong] for US$1m and we had to only pay the debt we met with the team which was US$ 400,000,'' Acheampong, who doubles as owner of  Achiken FC, said on Oyerepa 100.7FM.

''He [Champion] will return to AshantiGold after the Convid-19. We had a fruitful discussion last week which he agreed to return to the team.''

AshGold are fifth on the Ghana Premier League table after 15 matches.
