Asante Kotoko Board And Management Need Jaw-Jaw To Meet Ultimatum

Asante Kotoko will need to jaw-jaw in an attempt to end the incessant misunderstanding between Board of Directors and management. 

The jaw-jaw approach must begin now, with both parties willing to forgo the past and forge ahead. There are strong convictions that, if peace had prevailed between the Board of Directors and management, laurels would not have eluded the team. The deep cracks in the team is envisaged by many, to have contributed profusely to players misconduct in the club. Head coach Mariano Barreto and his assistant Johnson Smith have openly shared how players misconduct suffocated their ambitions. 

“The behavior they showed was not the behavior I requested. When you have players who come to the field and they are laughing when the team lose, something is strange.” Head coach Mariano Barreto told Nhyira Sports. 

If Board of Directors and management had fully concentrated on the team devoid of division, this canker would not have permeated in crucial circumstances. 

Even though management has tilted attention to the Adako Jachie project, but the club could have opted for the CAF Confederation Cup slot this time around, but the lack of communication between board and management will not give space to this idea. 

The jaw-jaw approach is the ideal panacea as has been indirectly offered by the leader of Asante Kotoko supporters, Christopher Damenya. “Asante Kotoko supporters are ready to demonstrate against board and management if they don’t settle their differences. We give them two weeks or we will march to Manhyia to let Otumfour know our grievances.” He told Oyerepa Sports. This statement gives an insight into how disappointed the fans are. Ultimatum put across by supporters reveal how reprehensible the situation has been. 

To thrash out their differences, both board and management members will need to come into terms with how things must go. Meeting schedules between the two ought to be given out before next season takes full swing, to avoid unanticipated excuses. Communication gap must not creep into the set-up henceforth. By now, both parties are aware that the interest of Asante Kotoko supersedes that of any individual, hence, all energies and initiatives must be geared towards that.

It will be a refreshing information for supporters if the Board of Directors and management adopt jaw-jaw path before the ultimatum by Christopher Damenya elapses. 

These accomplished individuals must prove to the innumerable followers of Asante Kotoko that they are ready to steer the club to greater heights. Time must be of essence to them as next season is birthed in October.
