There has been big men in Ghana to push some clubs to the limit we expect them. Not forgetting, a leader like Dr. Kwame Kyei who was in thr helm of affairs for Kotoko but the authorities resisted his monopoly of cash, it was a lesson they learn't from Togbe Afede XIV management at Accra Hearts of Oak which is not pleasing at all.
The Miners, with a revenue of US$ 1.7m, is the only Ghanaian club to secure a place in the top 100 list- 82nd position in Africa. Emmanuel Frimpong who was appointed two weeks ago to replace Frederick Acheampong after the latter resigned from his post as the CEO of the club says he is keen on restoring Ashanti Gold’s glory in Africa.
“The vision is to make Ashanti Gold one of the biggest clubs in Africa. As you already know Ashanti Gold is one of the biggest clubs in Ghana. We are trying to make it one of the biggest in Africa” Frimpong said. “At the end of the day without the supporters coming to the stadium, they can’t motivate the players to give us good results. The players do need your motivation to give us good results”
He added that his administration will pay particular attention to youth development. He is keen on revisiting the project which has been abandoned for years. Ashanti Gold SC was founded in 1978 by a group of employees of the Ashanti Goldfields Corporation under the name of Goldfields Sporting Club famously known as Obuasi Goldfields. The employees pleaded with management of AGC to sponsor the team, but they were always refused. The employees continued to pay the salaries and costs for the team and in the 1984 season the club finished as runner-up in the FA Cup.
The Aboakese team can make to the limit of these clubs Ahly and Kaizer Chiefs et al. Just because levels and roles have change this as the richest club in Ghana selling a player out of the system close to GHC2billion equivalent to $25,000. The ranking is based on current club accounts and annual budgets.
Egyptian giants Al Ahly SC lead the rankings with an amount of over US$ 28.2 m and is followed by Premier Soccer League side Kaizer Chiefs whose budget is reported to be US$ 23.2. Big spenders Mamelodi Sundowns are surprisingly in 13th place with a budget of US$ 9.5m
