Samuel Opoku-Nti, General-Manager of Asante Kotoko, has debunked rumours that he had been sacked.
The Kotoko legend, speaking to the GNA Sports in Kumasi on Tuesday, said it was also not true that the management team had been dissolved.
“We are still at post as we have not yet received any letter or message from the owner of the club, the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, directing us to bring our work to an end”, he insisted.
Opoku-Nti, who was reacting to media reports that he had been sacked, urged well-meaning supporters to treat those reports with the contempt deserved as they lacked substance and any basis.
“My appointment was sanctioned by the Asantehene himself and he is the only person I look up to for instructions and directions”, Opoku-Nti insisted, saying the reports of his sacking was a grand scheme by some people to distract the team’s focus.
Kotoko ended the 2014/2015 Premier League without any trophy, a sharp contrast of the previous season which saw them claim the League and FA Cups.
The development has given room for speculation and already some names had been linked to the General-Manager’s position, while there are reports also that Head Coach, David Duncan, could be replaced by an expatriate.
