Kotoko PRO insists sacked players were surplus to requirement

Published on: 15 May 2018

Public Relations Officer of Asante Kotoko, Obed Acheampong has reiterated that the sacking of three players last week were surplus to requirement.

Defenders Eric Donkor, Edwin Tuffour Frimpong and Frank Sarfo Gyamfi were the players to be officially released by the club.

According to Obed, the decision was taken by the technical team and management and it was based on footballing reasons and not disciplinary issues.

'For instance, in the case of the deputy captain, Eric Donkor we have two players at the left back positions and we have a lot of options over there as well.

'For now, we have two young players who are performing very well and Eric has fallen down the pecking order. The club parted ways with these players on mutual consent and not based on any disciplinary issues.

'Upon recommendations from the technical team, we were told to allow these players to join other teams as the transfer window has been opened.

'Moving forward we realize there will be a need for change', he added.

Meanwhile, top striker Saddick Adams, Yakubu Mohammed, Obed Owusu and defender Seth Opare have been put on the transfer-list.
