Kotoko CEO Blasts Hearts of Oak Coach Kim Grant
The Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko, George Amoako has hit back at Kim Grant over a "reckless" statement on the club's recruitment policy, describing him as an 'ignoramus'.
The former Ghanaian international who is now in charge of Hearts of Oak on Atinka FM criticised Kotoko's recruitment policy, saying "they brought a lot of players without any plan".
"I've looked at their team. There wasn't any league. If you put into that position they're making good use of it but they using lots of rift because they brought a lot of players without any plans," he said in an interview with Atinka FM.
But reacting to the statement, Mr Amoako believes the new Phobian coach went overboard as he is "not privy" to the policy direction of the porcupines warriors.
"Lets forget about those reckless comment. He (Grant) is not privy to what we are doing doing," he fumed on Asempa FM
"He doesn't know what he is talking about. Does he know what we're doing as a club.
"Please forget some of these ignoramus and let's move on."
Kotoko coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor recruited almost ten new players into his squad prior to their Africa campaign.
The Porcupine Warriors announced deals with nine new players for their Caf Confederation Cup campaign including Maxwell Baakoh, Kwame Conte, Muntari Tagoe, Abdul Safiu, and Daniel Nii Adjei amongst others.
