Former Asante Kotoko SC defender, Awal Mohammed has hit out at Kotoko faithfuls after taking a step to boycott their matches.

Low stadium attendance has become the center of attraction in the Ghanaian local league for sometime now, but sees a different level when it comes to the two most glorious traditional clubs in the West African Country thus Asante Kotoko SC and Hearts of Oak SC.

The low stadium attendance has also hit the aforementioned clubs severely, that they can not fill 25 per cent of either the Baba Yara Sports Stadium or Accra Sports Stadium.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Asante Kotoko SC, Nana Yaw Amponsah has been at the center of some heavy criticism from the media for his performances and behavior after Seydou Zerbo’s departure.

There has been persistent speculation within the media space that the CEO is arrogant and has issues with the club’s board of directors following the decision to sack the Burkinabé tactician.

Since Nana Yaw Amponsah’s appointment as CEO of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, there has been a big gap between the supporters and management of the team.

Some of the supporters are blaming him for low stadium attendance during Kotoko matches at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Speaking in an interview with , the former defender Awal Mohammed said;

“For Nana Yaw Amponsah I know him personally. He took me to Raja, Russia and Saudi. He is my man. The job cannot exceed his strength. He is a young man. He has his own ideas. You can see it. The supporters should come back. That’s the most important thing in Kotoko to show that team is big.

“The name Kotoko will never change. The stadium should be filled even if they are playing against Black Queens. Is their duty and not Nana Yaw Amponsah. He came to work. He will do what he can and go”

“There’s no need to say whether he can do the job or not… I am always sad just because of the supporters. They have to be proud of the team that they support,” Awal Mohammed added.

Nana Yaw Amponsah was appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko SC in August 2020.

He has worked with four different coaches, including Maxwell Konadu, Mariano Barreto, Prosper Narteh Ogum, and Seydou Zerbo. The Porcupine Warriors has just a trophy under his tenure after clinching the 2021-22 Ghana Premier league title.
