It’s quite a massive clear out at Kumasi Asante Kotoko, as seven (7) more players have been shown the exit door after their contracts were not renewed at the end of the season.

This brings to eighteen (18) the number of players who have left Kumasi Asante Kotoko after what was an underwhelming season under Prosper Narteh Ogum.

On Tuesday, the club parted ways with 11 players, including long-time captain and goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad.

The other players included Kalo Ouattara, Nicholas Osei Bonsu, Isaac Oppong, Augustine Agyapong, Nicholas Mensah, John Tedeku, ⁠Sherif Mohammed (Defender), George Mfegue, Serge Eric Zeze, and Moise Pouaty.

On Wednesday, with discussions still going on about some of the layers offloaded, seven more were announced to have been shown the exit door.

Although the 11 players were said to have been let go because it was mutual between the club and the players involved, many people felt some of them needed to have stayed at the club.

The seven additional players who are leaving are Samuel Asamoah, Nanabayin Amoah, Isahaku Fiseini, Rocky Dwamena, Richmond Opoku, Julius Ofori Ziggy, and Shadrack Addo.

According to a statement on the club’s socials, the seven players “agreed to the termination of their contracts by mutual consent.”

This massive clear-out means that Kotoko will spend heavily in the transfer market to build a team that can better last season’s performances.

At a point last season, Asante Kotoko, uncharacteristically, went seven matches winless, and supporters called for the sacking of the coach, but a meeting with the club owner, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, led to a bit of stability.

The club ended the season without a trophy, which is not what you expect from one of Ghana’s best clubs.

It remains to be seen what next season brings, but with the early action at the season’s end, the club appears to be intentional about getting things right.
