Editor for Asante Kotoko Express, Jerome Otchere has urged the supporters to the club to be patient with newly appointed Chief Executive Officer of the club Dr. Kwame Kyei.
After a shambolic display in the 2015/16 season, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II who is the owner and founder of the team dissolved the Opoku Nti led administration and was replaced by Dr. Kyei.
After a month of his appointment, Dr. Kyei has delayed on appointing his management team and board members.
The renowned philanthropist on Saturday December 10 announced his new management for the 2016/17 upcoming season in consultation with Manhyia Palace but Jerome has urged the supporters of the club to be patient with the Chief Executive Officer of the club.
“The change that happened within the club has brought many changes and Dr. Kwame Kyei wanted to take his time because he doesn’t want any disappointment because the supporters are expecting something very huge from Dr. Kyei.” Jerome told Asempa FM
“We want to take our time to work and in the few weeks to come there will be more changes. We have been able to get representatives for the club across board and Dr. Kyei has done well and I believe we should give him more time and I know he will deliver.
“With the appointments he has made, it is a mixture of truthfulness and an example is Mr. Ernest Owusu Ansah who is now the Director of Operations. He has worked behind closed doors to help the club but I must say that I don’t know Rose Padmore Yeboah who is now our administrative manager but if you don’t give the person the chance to work, you will not know the capabilities the person has so I am urging the supporters to give these people the time to work for the club because Mahyia gave them three years to work for the club.
“This is not the end of the appointments and when those people are in, it will give us a clearer picture of where the club wants to go so I am pleading we all understand Dr. Kwame Kyei and give him time to work.” He added.
The full list of Asante Kotoko new management comprises of Dr. Kwame Kyei whoo is the Head of Executive Board, Ernest Owusu Ansah who is the Director of Operations, Thomas Boakye Agyeman who is the Accra Representative and PLB Member, Obed Acheampong who is the Head of Communications and Rose Padmore Yeboah who is the Administrative Manager
