Former Asante Kotoko midfielder, Daniel Nii Adjei has slammed critics of the club’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Nana Yaw Amponsah.
The Porcupines have been struggling with results in the 2022/23 league season and as a result parted ways with head coach Seydou Zerbo.
Burkinabe gaffer Zerbo replaced title-winning manager Prosper Narteh Ogum who terminated his stay due to internal matters with the club’s top heriarchy.
Furthermore, local media reports say the club is struggling financially and some players are being owed monthly salaries, thereby affecting the results.
As the CEO ends his three-year tenure in 2023, some section of the fans believe Kotoko needs a new direction.
Nii Adjei spoke in an interview with Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM.
“The people in Kotoko are their own problem. As an ex-official of the club, you have had your turn without distractions from anyone.
“So the best thing to have done is to support the current officers of the club to succeed.
“It seems there are people seeking the downfall of the present management in order to get the opportunity to lead the club again.
“And they have forgotten that same will be done to them when they take over.
“Nana Yaw Amponsah has done well, he has won the league and developed Adako Jachie,” Daniel Nii Adjei said.
The former Asante Kotoko midfielder went on to describe the critics of Nana Yaw Amponsah as hypocrites.
“On Adako Jachie, I do not expect anyone to blame him. There are buildings certain people could have developed when they took over.
“These same people are attacking the current management over the development of Adako Jachie. There’s a lot of hypocrisy around the club.”
