AshantiGold’s new recruit Daniel Addo has explained reasons behind his decision to join the Obuasi-based ahead of Premier League giants Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak.

According to the 26-year old versatile defender, he joined the reigning Premier League champions because of the serene relationship he has with the management of the club.

“I thank God for the opportunity to join AshantiGold. I decided to join AshantiGold because I have a good relationship with the management and the technical team,” he said.

Addo who returned to Ghana to revive his ailing career was rumored to be joining Asante Kotoko but he snubbed the Kumasi-based side for the “Aboakese Lads”.

The former King Faisal dependable defender explaining his decision regarding his move to AshantiGold ahead of the domestic top-flight championship added that he nearly joined Kotoko because he was nurtured by current Kotoko gaffer David Duncan.

“In the beginning I was heading to Kotoko because coach Duncan nurtured me and handed me my debut league game at Hasaacas.

I agreed to join AshantiGold because during my stay at King Faisal before I travelled I signed a pre-contract with them so I have good relationship with them and that fueled my decision to join them,” he added.

Addo was part of Ghana’s U-20 team that made history in 2009 by becoming the first African country to lift the World Youth Championship which was held in Egypt
