The club has a lot of money to spend but settle your debts before any other issues

The development we used to say has not been there for these teams for them to help the player to mature before he moves to any other team. Come to think of this, there has been a lot of competition and preference in the players based on the indigenous and expatriates who wants to make their name in the team. A lot of Ghanaian players always cry for enough support from the teams over there since the players conspire not to allow them come and shine over them, talking Junior Agoogo, Ishmael Addo, Benjamin Acheampong et al. Division one side Nkoranza Warriors who transfers the player to Kotoko will received 15% onward transfer with Poku’s agent also receiving 10% as his share of the cash. The 23-year-old caught interest from USM Alger having excelled at Kotoko where he has been able to bag 7 League goals so far for the Club. Poku’s deal to the former Algeria Champions is a done deal hence expected to leave later this month. However Kotoko will lose almost 1/3 of the money from the deal.

The deal is said to be a four-and-half-year contract which will is worth over 500,000 euros. The prolific frontman had until Wednesday to decide whether to join the North African side or turn down the move, but has now put pen to paper to begin a fresh chapter in his career. USM Alger will however give the player the needed time to be in the Black Stars camp, due to his inclusion ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa and Sao Tome.

There were widespread media speculations that the forward’s entourage was against the player moving to Algeria but the player is said to have signed his contract already with the North African giants. Despite the defeat against E.S Setif board of Asante Kotoko is pleased with the kind of football the players sold out on Sunday and has promised to pay them a losing bonus of GHC 30,000. ''We had promised them GH¢ 30,000 to win but even though they couldn't win, tomorrow [Monday] we will give to them,'' Kotoko board member Kojo Boateng Genfi confirmed to Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM. Kumasi Asante Kotoko suffered a 1-2 defeat against E.S Setif of Algeria in the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup play-off on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Selling out good football does not guarantee you to sell to your opponent who is in contention to win every trophy on this continent to ensure that there is a sweet victory for them. It has become a norm by ensuring that in all the endeavors of the club the instant of selling a player to the North Africans rather than giving the player out to their competitors locally. This mantra has been some they have to put a stop to it in most time to ensure a better treatment and get back their recognition. Kotoko marksman Kwame Opoku registered the opener in the 69th minute before goals from Amoura Mohamed and Ahmed Kendouci in the 73rd and 80 minutes, respectively handed the visitors a 1-2 win.
