Ghana Premier League: Duncan was a wrong choice for Kotoko - Osei Palmer

Listen to article

The Chief Executive Officer of Tema Youth FC, Wilfred Osei Palmer has questioned Kotoko's decision to appoint David Duncan as Didi Dramani's successor .

Kotoko has dominated the headlines both on and off the pitch, and apex of their headlines was a comical and ridiculous week which saw Duncan train alone at the Adako Jachie field whilst his players were with his assistant at the Baba Yara sports stadium.

Life patron of the club, Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II met with the Board and management of the club, and David Duncan to ascertain the current state of the club.

And Wilfred Osei Palmer says the issues wouldn't have reached this level had management made the right decision.

"Duncan was not the right coach for Asante Kotoko. They had all wrong," the vice chairman of the Black Stars management committee told Joy FM.

"The timing of Duncan assuming the role of the team was wrong and looking at the circumstances under which Kotoko parted ways with Didi Dramani," he added.

Mr. Palmer alleged that the Kotoko fraternity has never seen David Duncan as one of their own.

"Duncan has never been accepted by Kotoko as one of their own. It is a marriage in surveillance; his loyalty has always been brought to question.

"Most of the people in Kotoko never saw Duncan as a coach. That marriage should not have been consummated at all," he said.

Asante Kotoko appointed David Duncan last year to succeed Mas-Ud Didi Dramani after a poor start to the 2014/15 league.
