Ghana Premier League giants, Asante Kotoko have reportedly parted ways with eleven players ahead of the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League season.

The Porcupine Warriors are preparing for the upcoming campaign and are set to open pre-season on Tuesday at Beposo.

As part of the plans to challenge for trophies next season, the Interim Management Committee (IMC) have released eleven players ahead of the new campaign.

According to reports from Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, the IMC has officially communicated to eleven players that their services will no longer be required ahead of the upcoming season.

This move is part of the club's rebuilding efforts to strengthen the squad for the challenges that lie ahead.

The players expected to leave the club include Abdul Rafiu Yakubu, Maxwell Agyemang, Andrews Kwadwo Appau, Mohammed Alhassan, Solomon Sarfo Taylor, and Samuel Boateng.

Additionally, Ernest Osei Opoku, Evans Adomako, Clinton Opoku, Charles Owusu, and Dickson Afoakwa are also among those who will be shown the exit door.

The owner and life patron of Kotoko, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, announced the formation of a four-member Interim Management Committee (IMC) on July 21.

The committee comprises Nana Apinkra Akwasi Awua, a chartered accountant and Kontomponiaferehene; James Kwesi Appiah, Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum, who has been named the new head coach; and Emmanuel Newton Dasoberi, who will serve as the administrative manager.

As the new season approaches, Asante Kotoko aims to assemble a competitive and cohesive team under the guidance of the Interim Management Committee.
