Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko have fired their management team which means highly respected administrator George Amoako has lost his job as the CEO of the former African champions.
The decision to sack the entire management team of the Porcupine Warriors was taken on Wednesday afternoon during a meeting of the newly-constituted board of the club.
The meeting took place at the Sports Hotel in Kumasi where management members were told their services is no longer needed as the club seeks to augment its administration.
Board chairman Dr Kwame Kyei thanked the management members for their services and told them they would be called if their services is needed by the club in the near future.
With a storm of change gradually building up in the camp of Asante Kotoko, many administrators are likely to lose their positions with George Amoako said to be one of the likely causalities.
The former General Secretary of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) served the Porcupine Warriors in the 1990s during the administration of Herbert Addo.
After a long break, he was in 2018 appointed by Dr. Kwame Kyei as the club’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) following the constitution of a new management team.
Having worked in that capacity for the past 2 years, growing speculations have indicated that George Amoako could lose his place.
This is coming on the back of the formation of a 9-member board of directors by the owner and life patron of the club, His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
Information picked up indicates that the board is set to change a lot of things at the club and some members of the management team will lose their position at the club.
Currently serving on the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on the ticket of Asante Kotoko, it is unclear if indeed Mr. Amoako will become a casualty or not.
With the new Kotoko board inaugurated today, the fate of the management team should be known in the new few weeks when they settle.
Meanwhile, it is understood that Dr. Kwame Kyei values the CEO of the club and will love to keep him working by his side.
