Asante Kotoko CEO, Nana Yaw Amponsah, has expressed regret over the decision to sack former Head Coach, Seydou Zerbo. The Burkinabe was relieved of his duties after eight months in charge of the Kumasi-based side, having won ten games, drawn six, and lost seven in 23 matches. Speaking to GNA Sports, Amponsah admitted that the decision was made due to pressure from fans, but he believed it was not the best choice.

While acknowledging that management was not happy with the decision, Amponsah stated that they had to listen to the grievances of their supporters.

The CEO also noted that even though Kotoko was battling their way into the top three of the Premier League, management was still hopeful of achieving success by the end of the season. He took responsibility for the team’s struggles, saying that the club could not win every year, and that the ups and downs were a part of sports.

After 30 games played in the 2022/23 betPawa Ghana Premier League season, the current champions now sit in sixth position with 44 points. While it has been a challenging season for the team, Amponsah believes that they have the quality to bounce back and challenge for the title next season.

For the most part, Amponsah’s comments highlight the importance of listening to fans while also acknowledging the need for stability in football. While it may be tempting to make changes in response to poor results, it is crucial to consider the long-term implications of those decisions. As Kotoko looks to improve their fortunes, they will need to strike a balance between responding to fans’ concerns and providing stability for the team.
