Kojo Bonsu urges Kotoko to implement drastic measures to restore club’s fortunes
Former Mayor of Kumasi Kojo Bonsu has advised authorities of Asante Kotoko to implement drastic measures to restore the fortunes of the club following their recent struggles.
Kotoko are likely to end the season without a trophy despite competing in three major tournaments in the ongoing campaign.
The Porcupines are currently sixth on the league log with just four matches to end the season while they have already been kicked out of the CAF Champions League and the FA Cup.
Kojo Bonsu who is a former executive member of the club has urged the management of the club to redefine the club’s direction by building an academy and inviting investors to develop the club.
“When Kotoko won Africa in 1983, I gave them their jersey and people in love with the team.
“When we lost to Al Ahly in the finals of Africa in Kumasi we had a solid team (Papa Arko, Akwasi Appiah, Opoku Nti, Prince Polley, and the rest) people seem to forget it and these players were dedicated to the club. We can’t see that again but people need to sit down and revive Kotoko again,” he said on Akoma FM.
“We need Academies just as many clubs across the world have so we can build the team well, and have dedicated people to do the work. We need an investor to pump money into the team also.”

“We can turn things around, just as Al Alhy has done, Kotoko has the numbers but what I seem not to understand is that Kotoko has reduced its standard to a very low rank. We need to sit and do proper research to resolve it.
“Consistency in the playing team is also needed. Even if we are to be demoted to Division Three and get things done properly, we need to because Kotoko must rise again.”
