Ex-Kotoko striker Kofi Nti Boakye has decided to offer the club an amount of $75,000 as a gift in the wake of the Porcupine Warriors' fury over the decision to sign for Libyan side Al Ahly Tripoli as a free agent.

The offer comes after Kotoko decided to report the striker to FIFA following his decision to sign for Al Ahli when he had three days left on his contract with the Ghanaian club.

Kotoko believe they should have earned money from the US$900,000 the  Libyan side, Al Ahly Tripoli is reported to have paid to the striker for his services.

Nti Boakye is reported to have earned $900,000 in the deal which also covers his enticement fee plus what the agents involved will earn.

Kumasi Asante Kotoko has written to the Ghana FA to register their displeasure about the transfer and also requesting a chunk amount from the transfer.

But some media outlets in Ghana say Kotoko’s pursuit will yield nothing.

Sources say the striker’s contract will the club expired on August 9 and his deal with the Libyan club officially takes effect from August 10, 2013.

Due to the turn of events, the striker himself has decided to offer the Ghana League champions $75,000 on his own will as a way of thanking the club for their support during his 18-month stint.

    For the sake of peace, and in order not to create bad blood between a once loyal player and his old team, Kotoko should accept his offer and let sleeping dogs lie. Who knows, he might come back to Kotoko some years to come. Valuable lessons have to be learnt from this mistake though.

    Oh kotoko and the usual lack of leadership.Is it that the fail to read the contracts they sign or is the english that is a problem.So all this hulla balloooo was just a useless noise. What prevented them from renewing his contract or cashing on him before the contract came to an end. A word to a wise

    I used to think two heads are always better than one. How can a team sit down for a player to get away with this sum of money. Is the money 900,000 dollars, if it is and he has decided to give Kotoko 75,000 dollars. So he will take the difference of 825,000 dollars. This guy is rich. Wow ! a particular head can be better than two. kotoko, wise up.

    I am very confident there r big guys in kotoko, who intentionally refuse to talk abt the players contract till it expires. They alert the players their intentions and get a kick back pay. This is not the 1st nor the 2nd. Whoever is in change of players contract in the team has to pay that same aMount to kotoko, because he didn't do the job required of him.

    well done nti boakye for this money will help kotoko do some recruitment.kotoko were busy concentrating on buying players they forget to value nti boakye so they left themselves loose.poor kotoko should thank nti boakye who has made a name for himself before joining kotoko for the 75000 dollars.

    Thanks Nti-Boakye for having pity on Kotoko. Your gift will go a long way in alleviating Kotoko's current poor financial situation. May the Lord favour your cause. Good boy!

    Seriously? You guys are thanking him for this amount? Couldn't Kotoko have had more if he had renewed his contract? I'm so ashamed of you guys, you doing Kotoko so much harm. Aaaa. So where is the 'wise' club owner? Can't he provide 75000$? An they say it's African Club of the Century? Better than El Ahly, Mazembe, Pirates? Guys, it will be a great mistake if Kotoko takes even $100000 as a gift. If they need money, they have a King who is wise and sits on gold. $75000 isn't any money. Even Kessben can dole out than amount with ease. If he doesn't want players to move, he should melt some of the gold and push it into the club. That's when they can rub shoulders with the real clubs in Africa. Aaaaaah
