Asante Kotoko legend Sarfo Gyamfi has revealed to a local radio station in Accra that Kotoko Board Chairman Kwame Kyei has been the problem of the club for years. His shocking outburst is from his analysis over the period and why Kotoko has been performing poorly sometimes.
The former Ghanaian international who also played in Austria and other countries insists there is no way Kotoko can go forward with internal wranglings. Known as the Black President, Sarfo is known for his no hold on the outpour of his feelings when it comes to Kotoko issues.
“Kwame Kyei has been Kotoko’s problem”, said Sarfo Gyamfi on Hot FM in an answer to a question as to why Kotoko seems to be at a standstill.
“On my return from abroad when the board chairman was at loggerheads with the CEO Nana Yaw, I started a campaign to solve the problems but some people came to me to plead that I should not support Nana Yaw in Kotoko “
” I vigorously supported him and spoke against the ills in our team. Colleague former player George Kennedy later came to me to tell me that I should go and apologize to Kwame Kyei because the Board Chairman feel peeved of what I am doing in Kotoko”.
It will be recalled that there were disagreements in Kotoko at a point last season, which nearly resulted in the Board Chairman resigning at a meeting at Golden Tulip, during which he left abruptly. There were reported cases of divisions in the board until Manhyia stepped in to calm matters.
Sarfo Gyamfi has meanwhile warned against detractors in the club and advised all Kotoko fans to join hands and push the club to higher heights.
The former Kotoko player was spotted yesterday at the Accra Sports Stadium when Kotoko played Great Olympics, a match they won by a goal to nil. He was happily chatting with other Kotoko Faithfuls including Alhaji Laminin, Nana Yaw Amponsah, Kwame Baah Nuako, Thomas Boakye-Agyeman, Akwasi Serebour Boateng, Emmanuel Dasoberi, Nana Kwame Dankwa, Michael Nkansah, Kwaku Ahenkora among others discussing Kotoko matters and heavily jubilating after Etouga scored the lone goal for Kotoko.
