‘I don’t play for a club beyond two years’ – Songnè Yacouba

Jesse Jantuah, the representative of Songnè Yacouba has shockingly said the former Kotoko forward does not stay at a club after two years.

The 28-year-old who is currently a free agent left the camp of the Porcupine Warriors following the expiration of his contract.

However, his proposed move to Medeama SC fell through due to the high demand of the player.

According to Mr Jantuah, it is very difficult dealing with French players as final decisions made with them are hugely influenced by a number of people who matter based on the player’s choice.

“With the French players, you can’t take decisions alone as a manager. When you are taking a decision, the player is involved, the father is involved and also maybe the wife. At times some of the friends,” Jantuah told Nhyira FM in an interview.

However, the player’s manager added that the former Stade Malien attacker’s refusal to pen a contract with any other club or a renewal to his expired contract with Asante Kotoko owes to his own guiding principle.

“You know I am a Kotoko supporter and I will love for Yacouba to play but he has told me that it is his policy that he doesn’t play for a club more than two years and at times you don’t stay in one country for more than two years, so he wants to move on,” he disclosed.

Songnè Yacouba signed for Kotoko as a free agent in January 2018 for two years.
