Published on: 10 April 2019


Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Asante Kotoko believes the club unearth players and that, the club will replace Burkina Faso International Songne Yacouba in no time amid reports of the playing leaving the club.

Though George Amoako is urging the fans to remain calm and put their trust in the Reds but insist Sogne Yacouba will be replaced should he depart the team.

Following Asante Kotoko’s exit from the CAF Confederation Cup, numerous African clubs have written officially to the club for the services of the striker who was very instrumental in the Porcupine Warriors in their Africa campaign.

George Amoako has assured the fans that the management will find a better player if Sogne Yacouba leaves. He also added that the club contributed largely in the player’s development.

“Yacouba wasn’t the Yacouba we see today before signing for Kotoko and no club was even willing to sign him but he became who he is today when he was imparted by the spirit of Kotoko,’ he told Oyerepa FM.

‘’It’s Kotoko that is Kotoko but not the player. The spirit of Kotoko can enter into any player and he will play at his best.

‘’So Yacouba or no Yacouba, Kotoko is still Kotoko and that’s why I am urging the fans to come and cheer the team and will get another Yacouba in no time,” he added.
