Kotoko Committed To Adako-Jachie Project

By Times Sports Reporter -

CHAIRMAN of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Sylvester Asare Owusu, has said that his outfit would begin their Adako-Jachie project only when it has generated the needed resources to sustain it.

He has therefore called on the club’s supporters to remain calm and hope for a better future for the club in the coming season.

Mr Asare Owusu said this on a radio show last week in Tema. He added that the current management team of the club is committed and united in its efforts at providing unity in its efforts at providing the best infrastructure for the club.

'We cannot begin a project we are not ready and have not budgeted for,' he stressed, pointing out that they have plans of putting together a modern sports complex for the club.

He continued that they are putting together plans of raising enough funds for the project, and would very soon launch a nationwide fund railing campaign to that effect.

'Monies raised would be channelled solely for the project,' he said, and believed that when completed, Kotoko will have one of the best training facilities in Africa.

He called on fans of the club to support the fund raising campaign when it is launched. 'Kotoko needs money to run the club and their help would be of much significance to their campaign'.

On the coming soccer season, he maintained that the club has had some of the best preparations and believed that they are very much on course in reclaiming the title they lost to rivals Hearts of Oak last season.

He accepted the challenge that this season promises to be a tough one, but assured the Red fans that everything possible is being done to ensure that the team records it 21st league success.

The Ghanaian season begins on December 1 with 16 clubs contesting for the right to be crowned champions and the two places on offer to the African champions league in 2009.
