Editor of Kotoko Express, Jerome Otchere believes it is the right decision to maintain Dr Kwame Kyei as Executive Chairman of Asante Kotoko.

The club owner, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II on Thursday, announced a new nine-member Board of Directors with Dr Kwame Kyei retained as the head.

The announcement has been met with mixed reactions. However, Jerome insists the astute businessman has served the club with a good heart and therefore deserves to stay on.

"We have to be honest with ourselves. Looking at the work Dr Kwame Kyei has done for the club, he deserves to retain his position at the club," he told Asempa FM.

"He has single-handedly run the club with his money and I think he must be praised for his good works.

"He has served the club in a good manner and giving him another opportunity is a right call.

"If we want him out, then we should refund his money. You cannot be ungrateful Dr Kyei looking that the job he has done for the club.

The astute journalist also implored the new board to structure the finance of the club and purchase players who can help the club to achieve.

"I think the board must structure the finance of the club properly and get more corporate sponsorship. If not, then it will still be a one-man show.

"Purchasing of players must be well done. Get in players who can help Kotoko achieve more. If these things are done, the club will return to where it belongs to," he added.
