Former Black Stars midfielder, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu, has heaped praises on Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer [CEO], Nana Yaw Amponsah for his work done so far at the club.

Nana Yaw Amponsah has secured numerous sponsorships for the club in his first year at the club.

However, after ending the season trophyless, the 20219 Ghana Football Association [GFA] aspirant has been criticized with many calling for his exit from office.

But the former Udinese Calcio and Hellas Verona midfielder commended Nana Yaw Amponsah for a great job stating he will be very astonished and disappointed if he's asked to leave. He said;

"Everyone has his opinion but for me, I don’t think he (Nana Yaw Amponsah) deserve to be sacked," the U-20 World Cup winner told Energy FM.

"He has done a tremendous job. He has changed player signing to the standard of Europeans. He has done a lot and you can claim you doesn’t like him but his managerial style has been superb."

He also stressed that he will be disappointed should the board sack Nana Yaw Amponsah.

"So I will be very disappointed if the board decide to sack him," he said.

Asante Kotoko have Hisense, Ceek, Erea, of which he also confirmed the club has made a profit of $900,000 from sponsorships in the just-ended season with more to be expected going forward.
