Otumfuo storms Kotoko training grounds amid club crisis
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, stormed the training grounds of the crisis-ridden Asante Kotoko unannounced on Tuesday after pressured piled on the Ashanti King following the dwindling fortunes of the giants.
The owner of the Ghana Premier League side was forced to visit the players after the giants slipped to the bottom of the table for the first time in its history amid the confusion over the coaching staff.
This comes after a massive storm erupted on Tuesday morning after axed coach David Duncan refused to quit, deepening cracks and factions within the ranks of the Porcupine Warriors.
The decision to ask the coach to stand aside was the first of a series of measures being instituted to salvage the image of the former Premier League champions.
‘The last straw that broke the camel’s back was last Sunday’s 0-1 loss to Aduana which pushed the club to the bottom of the table,’ Kwaku Ahenkorah, the club’s communications manager told the Graphic Online.
Kotoko have only five points from a possible 18 points after six matches and occupy the bottom of the 16-club league table.
Kotoko have won one home match against Sekondi Hasaacas and have drawn two other matches to the chagrin of their vociferous fans.
