Asante Kotoko National Circles Chairman, Kwaku Amponsah says Executive Chairman Dr Kwame Kyei should be blamed for the current crisis facing the club.

The supporter’s chief said this on the back of Asante Kotoko’s elimination from both the CAF Champions League and the Confederation Cup this season.

The Porcupine Warriors last Sunday crashed out of the Confederation Cup play-offs after losing to San Pedro.

The defeat has led to the fans calling for the sacking of the coach and management members.

Speaking on Anopa Bosuo Sports with Ohene-Bampoh Brenya on Happy FM, he said,

“Kwame Kyei’s leadership is not helping. The team is not progressing under his administration”.

“He is the root cause of Asante Kotoko problems because he presides over the management and hires these coaches. AshantiGold warned us when we appointed Kjetil Zacharrisen but yet still we gave him the job without doing any background checks”.

“Within three years we have changed about eight coaches, so why don’t we blame the person hiring these coaches. The selection by the coach against San Pedro even showed we were going to lose the game”, he concluded.

Dr Kwame Kyei’s three-year mandate given to him by His Royal Majesty Otumfour Osei Tutu II will end this November.
