Isaac Amoako, the longest serving goal keeper for Kumasi Asante Kotoko has confirmed his exit from the club after eleven years service.
Amoako said that his departure was communicated to him through a phone call as he explained matters pertaining to his exit from Kotoko. The former B.A United and Ashgold number one spoke on Boss FM Sports on Saturday morning.
“I can confidently confirm that I am no longer with Kotoko and that my contract which ended recently was not renewed by authorities of the club”.
“I was officially informed through a letter but got the message through a phone call before been handed the letter”. Amoako told Boss Sports.
He continued by explaining that, “the assistant coach Godwin Ablordey called all of us (players) to inform us of the date for the start of the pre-season last week, so on the said day, i was on my way to the training grounds when I was called on phone to alert me, my contract would not be renewed and so no longer had anything to do with the club, therefore I immediately stopped and returned home”.
” I must say I am happy with my time with Kotoko and would never think bad of anyone in the club though I think my departure would have been handled in a more respectful way, Kotoko is my family and would always be in my heart. I take this opportunity to thank the management, fans and especially my colleagues for the support i received all these years”. Amoako added.
He also denied rumours that he is on his way to join Accra Hearts of Oak, ” I have heard the rumours of my talks with Hearts of Oak but I can confirm that as of now, nothing like that has gone on, I cannot confirm my next destination but so far as I am now a free player, my doors are opened for any club who is interested to come talk to me.” Kotoko’s former captain concluded.
Amoako who is one of the longest serving players won several tittles with Kotoko including league and FA Cup trophies.
