Mr Tetteh Oku has not been paid since helping the club to sell the player and decided to drag the club to court to take his Gh¢ 120,000.
However, a report filed by Kumasi based Oyerepa FM, Tetteh Oku won his case against the club and will be paid Gh¢120,000 in one week. Failure to settle the debt in one week will see the Porcupines’ account frozen.
It will be recalled that Kwame Bonsu joined Tunisian side Esperance de Tunis in 2019 but Kotoko did not receive the transfer fee of the player due them.
Kotoko, therefore, engaged the services of Offside Consult, a football management consultancy firm that deals with everything football related to helping the club recover their locked up funds with the Tunisian side.
The Reds tried all tricks in the book to try and recover the transfer fee of the player but were not successful and therefore employed the former Hearts of Oak General Manager’s services to help recover the cash.
Asante Kotoko the central midfielder to the Tunisian outfit in 2019 after his excellent form for them in the CAF Confederations Cup group stage for a reported fee of $140,000.
