‘Kotoko is administratively weak’

Former Editor of Kotoko Express, Jerome Otchere, has said despite the club’s 2017 MTN FA Cup triumph, the club is weak administratively.

The Porcupine Warriors endured a difficult campaign in the just ended 2016/17 Ghana Premier League and worked with five different coaches, finishing 5th with 43 points on the league log.

Speaking to Kwame Dwomoh-Agyemang on Class 91.3FM on Monday, Mr Otchere said: “I think that the Asante Kotoko administration is still weak. Administratively, it is very weak…It is good that we win on the pitch, it is good we have players ready to perform and it is also good that we have a coach, who in my mind, is the best in Ghana irrespective of whoever won the league. The problems, however, are basic things. The club doesn’t have a functional media outfit. For 15 years, we have had, for example, a newspaper running, but in the last three months, that newspaper has been shut down.”

Mr Otchere further urged the team to set their priorities right ahead of their next season’s CAF Confederations League.

“Inasmuch as we have the money and the fans to drive the club along a certain path, you need a plan. I think in the first place, we must commend the team for winning the FA Cup, but the next thing we have to do is to set our priorities right. There have been occasions where we win competitions like this and created an impression that next year we will storm Africa and win the Champions League, and I always say that is delusion and I think that the temptation to be deluded again is still there,” he stated, adding that: “What we need to do, in my opinion, is that we allow the coach to do a critical analysis of the team and do a proper strengthening of the team so that if they will need two or more players, they buy before they start playing in Africa.”
