Songne Yacouba's season is over if he doesn't renew his contract - Kotoko coach Maxwel Konadu

Asante Kotoko coach Maxwell Konadu says Songne Yacouba's season at the club has ended if he doesn't renew his contract after rejecting the club's offers.

The 28-year-old has been omitted from the squad in Kotoko's last two games - against arch rivals Hearts of Oak and Liberty Professionals in the on-going 2019/20 Ghana Premier League.

Yacouba says he will only sign a new deal if the Porcupine Warriors will pay him an astonishing $150,000 for a three-year deal.

Speaking in an interview following their 1-1 stalemate against Liberty Professionals, coach Maxwell Konadu said the forward will not make the match-day squad in the rest of their games if he fails to renew his contract.

"Like I said last weekend, he [Songne Yacouba] is now not part of my team for the season," coach Konadu told reporters.

"Yacouba will return to the match-day squad in any of our subsequent games if he agrees terms with the club over a new deal.

"His season at Kotoko has ended if he doesn't renew his contract."
