Former Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan has disclosed he harbours nothing against Asante Kotoko after leaving the club.

The 26-year-old has left the club after 10 years after losing his place in the team last season.

However, in the past two seasons, he has lost his position. Last season, he was the club's third-best choice falling behind Razak Abalora and Kwame Baah respectively.

Annan joined Kotoko as a teenager in 2011 from Gomoa Fetteh Feyenoord and rose through the ranks to become the club's number one shot-stopper.

In an interview with Kumasi-based Kessben FM, Annan affirmed he did not leave the club out of pain but said he is leaving with much joy.

“It is true I have left Asante Kotoko. For some weeks now I have been engaging management about taking a new challenge. It is my decision that at least I have been able to work for the club for many years and it is better for me to move on to look for a new adventure," he said.

Asked if he is leaving out of pain, he said, “Not really, I will never regret because for me despite things didn’t go how I wanted in a couple of months, I am leaving Kotoko with so much joy and excitement because I’m not leaving because of anyone but emotionally and psychologically I felt it is time for me to go and search for a new challenge and adventure.

“So it is not because of pain, Kotoko is a club I love. With the joy and happiness, I have for the club, nothing can separate us though am leaving. It has been ten years of happiness despite the ups and downs, I’m leaving with so much love and respect for the club,” he added.
