Former Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan has brought daylight to his exit, making revelation on how Nana Yaw Amponsah felt after leaving the club.
Annan left Asante Kotoko after 10 years before the start of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season.
The 27-yearl-old goalkeeper ruled out rumors of leaving Kotoko in pain after losing his starting role in the first team to Kwame Baah and Razak Abalora in the previous season.
Annan, however, explained that the club’s CEO, Nana Yaw Amponsah was so sad following his departure after he had engaged him to stay.
Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Original Tv via zoom, the American-based Ghanaian goalkeeper made it clear that he left the club with a pure heart and wanted to have a new adventure.
Responding to the host after he was quizzed on having any misunderstanding before leaving the Porcupines, Annan answered, “Oh, no. Is not about that. I’ve always said in life you just have to appreciate and then see whatever that happens. Nobody asked me to leave Kotoko. I personally made my decision that I wanted to leave. For me I felt like I’ve given a lot to the club and then is time for me to also find a new adventure. I just wanted to have a new adventure because for me leaving the CEO, Nana Amponsah didn’t like it. Nana Yaw was surprised and was so sad because he never wanted me to leave at all. He spoke to me but I told him that it got nothing to do with the coach, management or anything. You know I love Kotoko and I’ve given them everything but I feel that I just want to have a new challenge somewhere.”
The 26-year-old joined Kotoko as a teenager in 2011 from Gomoa Fetteh Feyenoord and rose through the ranks to become the club’s number one shot-stopper. He currently plays for United States Of America lower-tier Maryland Bobcats Football Club.
