Asante Kotoko legend, Wilberforce Mfum, has demanded the swift dismissal of the club's head coach, Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum, following a series of disappointing performances.

Expressing profound dismay at Kotoko's recent direction under Ogum's guidance, Mfum openly criticized the decision of the Interim Management Committee (IMC) to retain him despite enduring five consecutive defeats.

"That's just not acceptable. If I had any influence within the team, I would have opposed the IMC's choice," Mfum stated during an interview with Akoma FM.

"How can you suffer five defeats and still hold the reins at Kotoko?" Mfum questioned.

Mfum's dissatisfaction echoes the sentiments of numerous fans who find it intolerable for a club as esteemed as Kotoko to endure such an extended period of poor results.

He stressed the importance of upholding the dignity of Otumfuo, the club's royal patron, suggesting that the current predicament tarnishes his reputation.

"The reputation of Otumfuo cannot be dragged down to this extent," he remarked.

Furthermore, Mfum raised doubts about the extent of Ogum's authority in player recruitment, expressing concerns over the calibre of signings made during his tenure.

"Why was he given unilateral power in player acquisitions?" Mfum questioned.

"Kotoko deserves top-tier players who can pack the stadium with fans, not players from lower divisions like we currently have," Mfum concluded.

Prosper Narteh Ogum will hope to lead the side to record a win when they travel to play Bechem United in the matchday 24 games at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park this weekend.
