The Communications Director of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Mr. Obed Acheampong has rubbished recent comments of his the way and manner his outfit distributes bonuses to the playing body.
Obed was at the studios of Abusua FM in Kumasi on Tuesday afternoon to explain matters with respect to the recent bonuses shared amongst the playing body after Kotoko beat Accra Hearts of Oak, 3-1 in the finals of the MTN FA Cup.
The Communications Director said “Kotoko deserves commendation not condemnation for the way the bonus was allocated after the Hearts of Oak game”
“Comparatively Kotoko pays better because there are some so called clubs in the premier league who pays a meagre three hundred cedis but you do not hear any complains from their camps”, he explained.
Obed continued by reacting to the comments from some of the players of the team on the issue, “meanwhile, there are clubs who still owe their players like three months.
The players were fully aware of the bonus structure about the FA cup so am surprised about some of them complaining”.
“We did it to appreciate and motivate the players but it does not mean a player who played only one match will get the same bonus as a regular player. Obed emphasised.
He went on to confirm that the team’s delight after beating their arch rivals to the MTN FA Cup, “We will be in the celebration mood till next season.”
The Kotoko Communications chief also confirmed their attention on the family of the late Thomas Asare,who lost his life when the team had an accident in June.
“We have adequately catered for the family of the late Thomas Asare but we can’t reveal the figures” Obed concluded.
