Accra, June 20, GNA - Supporters of Kumasi Asante Kotoko have been advised to desist from peddling in rumours, which tend to bring the club into disrepute.
Mr Jerry Asare, Special Assistant to the Chief Executive of the club, made the call when he addressed supporters of the Teshie-Nungua Union (Circle 142), of the club at Teshie, in Accra on Saturday. Mr Asare said the stories that some members of the old Interim Management Committee (IMC) had been appointed by the new management was purely rumour and must not be entertained.
On the way forward for the club, he said, Malik Jabir, Technical Director, had been tasked to take over the club's Under 20 side so that young and talented players could be recruited.
He asked the supporters to devote their love to the club instead of personalities, which he said had caused the club a lot of harm. Mr Asare urged the Union to embark on membership drive as their prime aim.
Mr Michael Cofie, Chairman of the Union, expressed regret about how Kotoko players had been sidelined from the national football team, the Black Stars.
He appealed to Kotoko supporters to forget about the recent defeats that the club suffered and instead rally behind it so that it could regain its lost glories.
Mr Cofie also reiterated its appealed to the Ghana Football Association to persuade Accra Hearts of Oak to refund the Charles Taylor transfer money to the club.
