Asante Kotoko legend Wilberforce Mfum calls for Prosper Narteh Ogum’s sacking amid club’s unimpressive performance

Published on: 03 April 2024

Asante Kotoko legend Wilberforce Mfum has called for the immediate sacking of coach Prosper Narteh Ogum following the club’s unimpressive performance in the ongoing campaign.

The Porcupine Warriors has been poor since the resumption of the Ghana Premier League in February. The Ghanaian have managed just a win from six games in the second round of the season, losing five in the process.

Expressing deep concern over the club's trajectory under Ogum's leadership, Mfum criticized the Interim Management Committee's decision to retain him despite a string of five consecutive losses.

“That is not right. If I had held any capacity in the team, I wouldn't have agreed to this decision of the IMC.

"How can you lose five matches and still be at the helm of Kotoko?" Mfum quizzed during an interview with Akoma FM.

"Otumfuo's name can't be disgraced to this level," He remarked.

Moreover, Mfum questioned the extent of Ogum's authority in player recruitment, raising concerns over the quality of signings made under his tenure.

"Why was he given so much power to purchase players singlehandedly?

"Kotoko deserves top-class players who can fill the stadium with supporters, not lower-division players like we currently have." Mfum concluded.
